    One of my favorites...took a few years for it to get happy, but for the last 3 three years has been very vigorous.

    Thanks All, I have had this plant for about six years. Very bright light and near daily watering seem to be the key for me.

    That’s really nice!
    What is it mounted on? Also, what is the night temperature during summer?

    Thanks again! It is growing on a slab cut from a tree trunk (maybe oak of some kind). Generally, I get down into the mid 50’s F for Summer nights with an occasional week or two of 60’s.

    Thanks for the information. I guess our summers here in Baltimore are too warm. I won't get below 70 in the summer, not even in the basement. I have to stick to hybrids with cernua in them.
