    Of that's nice. I've been trying to grow one for years, and it does nothing for me. Have any culture advice? Pretty please? :)

    Jon, I'm growing it intermediate, daily water, potted in moss in a 3" net pot. It gets hangs on the rings from mounted plants, gets moderate light and is growing with lepanthes.

    Well, it's more of a "not killing it" as opposed to a "growing it" situation. It's intermediate (55 winter lows to 85 summer highs), low light, TF mount, daily water pretty much year round, high RH. I think I need to up the light, maybe give it more air flow, and try it in a basket.

    Piotr, I don't know why that would be happening. I know that when I view my images on OI in Firefox they are quite a bit darker (maybe drabber) than when I view them on my monitor, in other browsers, or when they are printed in a good magazine.
