    Lovely. Any growing tips to share? I have three other Dracula species that thrive and bloom, but this one just barely holds on. -Stephen

    Boytjie, I had it in my intermediate orchidarium where it just survived. It was getting sick. However, I have a Borgen floral cooler, now! I maintain a little higher humidity (90%, up from 85%) and control the temperature completely; it's 69f day (20.5C) and 50f night (10C). It has always been grown under lights with plenty of air movement (enough to see the leaves move a little). I also try to maintain 1500ppm CO2, but that's new and may not have affected this plant.
    What temps are you running?
