    This one is pretty. Mine had a set back. Had it potted outside in bark and the roots had trouble drying after awhile. I put it in a basket with no media. It is starting to bounce back and gave a bloom. Deciding whether to add large bark or volcanic rock to the open basket or just let it continue bare root.

    What I understand about most of this genus (nodosa, cucullata, perrinii which I have) is that they are from a windy and rainy part of Caribbean islands and most of them like to get dry quickly and prolonged wetness would not be suitable for these. growing them mounted is the best bet for my conditions.

    Thank you Sriram. I will keep mine bare root then in the basket. David or I water it well once a day or twice if it's really looking dry. It seems to be growing lots of roots. Waiting for more leaves.
