    Nice species. I killed a couple of these once. I should try again.

    Dale, do you grow walkeriana mounted or in a pot? Max/min temps? I've never grown
    this particular Catt. very well and I don't quite understand why.

    "do you grow walkeriana mounted or in a pot?"

    This one started out in a pot. It didn't stay there very long. My other plants of this species are in baskets.

    Minimum of c. 62°F. Winter maximum c. 74°F; summer maximum c. 86°F.
