I believe that Unguicularis in their native habitat live in somewhat
poor soil and have adapted to it.  Some of my clumps never get any
fertilizer and grow and bloom profusely.  If I remember I will apply a
small amount of granular fertilizer around the plant in the fall when
new growth is apparent.
