    Beautiful! I picked one up from Botanica at the POE. How are you growing yours, Tom?

    JonP, The plant/plants came mounted on treefern and I just dumped the whole thing in the basket. Medium light and dry out between waterings, even drier in winter. I have never had much luck with this genus and I had killed a couple of other species from this genus over the years.
    Just a note, Clark grows this species wet in FL.

    That flower looks amazing. Really nice. I have T. Ollie Palmer, I got as a close out from Lowes for a buck or 2!!. Old leaves are damaged but started to grow a lot of roots and new leaves. Takes full sun well, Leaves have some nice purple spotting.
