    If you see the photo of Zain's plant I can see it is getting bright light .... just be careful of direct extremely hot midday sunlight as that might scorch the leaves due to excess heat. It loves hot to warm conditions but not direct burning heat from the sun.

    Hmmmm .... perhaps feed it with a bloom booster fert? Just my thoughts ....

    The challenge is that I grow under the light. Although it is 400W HID light and the plant sit only 1' (12 cm ) away from the light, it may not be strong enough.

    How low the temparature can it take? High 50F would work? Since Portland is experiencing an unusual cooler summer ( high temp has not hit 90F (=32 c), I might take it outside.

    Since I'm very near to the equator my night temperature is rarely touch less than 23 degree C however during daytime it's may reach up to 36 degree Celsius. I think Philippine, the night temperature even lower than mine maybe Jojo can help.

    hot to warm growing monopodial epiphyte that likes steady watering year round. Plants are best grown hanged in baskets and on mounted and require bright to full sunlight and warm temperatures. ..... a clue as to what the plant likes best in order to coax it to bloom.
