Acclimatization is a process of environmental adaptation from heterotrophic conditions to autotrophs. Pencil orchid plants whose seeds have been propagated in vitro require this environmental adaptation. Types of planting media and fertilization are important. This study aims to obtain the type of media and fertilization to acclimatize pencil orchids during the acclimatization period. This experiment used factorial completely randomized block design (CRBD). The first factor is the type of planting media; coconut coir, rockwool, wood shavings, and fern roots, and the second factor is the frequency of fertilization: once every 2 days, every 3 days, and once every 4 days. The result showed that there were significant interactions between the type of planting medium and the frequency of fertilization at the stem diameter variable. Orchid planting media significantly affected plant height, number of leaves, number of roots and root length, while fertilization significantly affected the number of leaves, number of root and root length. The best planting medium to produce the best diameter orchid pencil stems is fern root which is fertilized once every four days, but the medium of coconut fiber and root shavings that are fertilized three time a day is a good alternative. To produce plant height, the best number of leaves and root length can use fern root media and wood shavings. Pencil orchid fertilized four or three days can produce the best number of leaves, number of roots and root length
