    Very distinct, very lovely pastel colors contrasting the yellow and red.

    Nothing special, Bruce. It resides on a mount in one of my terrariums. It can handle some neglect -- due to the succulent leaves no doubt. It is grown warm and with light somewhere between phal and catt levels. A pretty easy plant.

    Do you have to keep it cool? Can it survive heat up to and into the 90s?

    Temps commonly are in the 80's in my terr. 90's are not unheard of though that's not intentional. I don't have a lot of options with restricting heating in the terr -- particularly in the summer months. So I would expect that it should be able to deal with it in your greenhouse.

    The labellum of this species is awesome.
