    Mine grows in bark and has flowered every year for the past 3 years in SH & GH. For me it is one of my doers. And the fragrance is to die for but beware if you transport it in flower in a car with the windows closed it can be rather overpowering.

    As a newer grower, I purchased Sharry Baby Tri Colors as it was the first Sharry Baby I could find. The more I am around this plant the more I love it. This past weekend I found a Sharry Baby Sweet Fragrance. It is just beautiful.

    Mine are also growing in a bark mixture, not moss.

    I am told that Sharry Baby is the most popular orchid - not sure if in the US or the world but there are certainly a heap of them around.

    I grow mine very well in bark mixed with charcoal and large perlite.
