    This clone does not have the best flower shape but it sure is floriferous.

    That's lovely. I haven't had the greatest success with this species. Are you able to describe your winter/summer culture for it? Yours looks great!

    Thanks.
    68 - 78 F in summer (that's as cool as it gets in our basement here in Baltimore), 55 - 68 F in winter. It needs a lot of water during the growing season but should not stay wet, which is tricky. I have it in sphagnum mixed with LECA and perlite to make it airy enough. Much less water in winter but not bone dry.
