    Grown under lamp light. Probably the reason for the small-ish leave.

    Wonderful! How wet/dry do you keep it and what temps?

    The medium is a rather coarse bark (12-20 mm) with nothing else in it (well, a little bit of chalk powder). Temperatures in winter: 15 - 20C, in summer: 17 - 28C depending on the weather.
    While growing I give water whenever the medium is dry, in rust once or twice a month.
