    I grow this in bright indirect light (although it gets FS in early morning), intermediate, mounted on cork. One of the photos shows how it spikes on both sides of the fan. I've had this for several years but it has never produced a second fan. Blooms are less than 1/4 inch.

    Neat little plant and very nicely bloomed, too.

    How cool that it's mounted in such a way as to see the spikes from both sides. Perfect!
