    This is the first time I have gotten more than one flower open at a time so I thought I had better photograph it in case it never happens again.;)

    I am growing it with 56F minimum nights, days up to about 80F. I haven't done so well with it in moss, though I think I probably started them off that way. I am now growing them in net pots in bark so they go towards dry between watering. The larger plants are in medium bark, the smaller ones are in a finer bark mix and the net pot is set inside a plastic pot to increase the humidity at the roots. They get moderately bright light. They can be very difficult to get going. A well grown plant will still look rather twiggy with a number of bare canes.
