    I had one for a few years but unfortunately not any longer. It is an African terrestrial but has colonized in the lower US, Central and South America. I grew it in fine bark mix with some peat added. I kept it moist and in eastern light exposure. Intermediate to warm temps. It is admired more for it's leaves than flowers but I liked the flowers too!

    Andrea, I just got one of these. How is yours doing? Do you have any additional tips? Do you keep it moist or let it dry out? Thank you!
