    One of my faves! The roots look pretty happy, too.

    WOW, well done! I haven't had much success with these, what's your culture?

    I/W, CHC mix in basket, bright light, moist and good air movement. Maybe slightly drier in winter.

    thank's , think I'll up the light, I've tried sp. moss, bark , and mounted, I thought the light was about 1500 to 2000 ft candle, been growing them for 3 years, 6 plants 4 different types. If higher light doesn't work{and it should} I'm going to compost the SOB's I mean, little darlings.
