    I bought one if these but it did nothing until finally slowly withering away. How do you grow it? I had it with my highland lepanthes which are surviving so I'm not sure what went wrong.

    That's strange, it is a very easy grower and bloomer in cool and moist conditions

    That's what I thought too, maybe it was too small a piece. It was just a small piece someone gave me and i always suspected that it just didn't have enough mass.
