    This is one of my favourite species outside the miniature zone. Its has huge flowers as you can see. Its a intermediate growing species and is not that demanding. Grown mounted on a horisontal raft of Epiweb for 5 years.

    Wow, that's amazing. Do you know of any vendors that offer this for sale? I see it likes cooler temperatures. In what conditions do you grow it?
