    How do you grow this species? Thanks for any culture info.

    I grow it (not sure I would call it well grown) shady and high humidity. I got several at the WOC and had trouble with them. I mounted them and had them out where there was a good breeze. Mostly they were going down hill. I tried them a bit more humid and a piece fell off and was laying on top of a basket of a Dracula. When I noticed it, it was doing better than the others so I left it there. It is still draped over the basket and is growing on either side of the basket. Good roots hanging out in the air. I have lost track of the other pieces, perhaps they died or I just can find them.

    Thanks, Marni. I am assuming you are growing it I/C since it is with the Dracula.

    Thanks again, Marni. I just got my plant and I hope it will get established soon and do well for me.
    I really like the markings/red spots on the leaves.

    Candace, I just got this cutting from a dear friend, but I don't know where he got the mother plant. I let you know if I find out the source.

    Candace, my friend said his wife got it at show from a foreign grower and the tag had nothing but the species name. Sorry.
