    Hey Carlstraub

    I grow this plant warm, average high temp 80, low 65. I keep it moderately moist but not sopping wet, maybe water it every couple of days. The plant gets moderate to high light. I have it in sphagnum moss (and it needs repotted in fresh this spring) and it is in a 4'' pot. I fertilize it about once a week. It can take pretty high light if I give it good air movement and high humidity.
    Good luck with yours! And post photos of it when it blooms, please!

    Thanks all, for your very nice comments.

    Here's a full plant shot for Jon.

    Thanx

    Thanx Mary Jane,
    I'll give it a move to a brighter area. The 85 may be tough for my conditions.
    Its in SH and gets reg feeding.

    Hi Mary Jane,
    We live in Malibu, Calif. It's on the western edge of Los Angeles County by the Pacific.
    Temp stays moderate here the year 'round.

    Carl, I bet a move to a brighter area would do the trick for you. Please let me know how it works.

    I love PYP's and have acquired a nice collection. Love to see them 'floating on the breeze' on the balcony. I have two of the 'Sun #7' clones and love them. Continuous blooms, gorgeous nearly 6" flowers. Same culture as Mary Jane's although mine are growing in sphag and/or lava rock.
