    Spied this a few days ago while vacationing on the island of Cozumel, Mexico. Big clumps, growing on mangrove trees, coconut palms, and a few scrub trees. All were growing in blazing full sunshine, some within reach of the ocean spray. I also found some Schomburgkia species (out of bloom) which I'll try to post on another thread.

    Nice. Thanks for the photo. I guess I coddle mine too much then they die.

    Fantastic! Full sun, I guess I coddle my plant a little too much as well.
