    cool, well thats if i get it to bloom lol. So far its doing great except it was getting to much light and some leaves were looking kinda yellowish so i have it under more shade now and humidity is about 70% plus i have it on a humidity tray and i mist it early in the morning. I think its growing a new root so i guess its liking s/h. Thanks again guys for all the great info =)

    they can handle quite a lot of light. Once it is properly rooted I think it will do well and bloom better in high light as long as it gets adequate water.
    Phrags like lots of water, even caudatum types do. I know the web says caudatum/wallisii/powowii likes being drier, but drier is not by much. They still grow relatively wet compared to other orchids.
