    I'm pleased with the flowering this year. Flowers are near 4 inches across.

    So beautiful and serene. Makes me wonder why I am growing the alba form. can you say a bit about how you are growing it and the media?

    Marni, I have this growing in LECA in a net pot. I used to have it sitting on a shelf but it kept falling over. Once the roots had the LECA bound together I left it on it's side and hung it. It is in intermediate-warm conditions with bright, indirect light. It is close to the floor and in a spot where the floor stays wet from the humidity misters so that location is likely quite humid all the time (unlike the rest of my greenhouse).
