    Got this one from eBay last year. It arrived half-dead with no viable roots, and an apologetic letter from the seller offering a refund if it didn't survive. Figured I'd give it a shot. After six months of moping, it decided to live, and now has one bloom, with two more buds on the way. Growing I/W and shady in a 3" plastic net pot in sphag. ;)

    It might do even better if you can put it in a cool part of the growing area. I love kefersteinias.
