    Thanks! I'll try to keep the humidity up.

    Just an FYI, I have a high humidity area where I grow my more delicate plants, and no other masdie that I have tried (the list is in no way extensive) growing in my living room has done well.

    The herradurae is just like a little tank

    I am growing Masd. Fire Queen, which is a warm-growing hybrid...it hasn't bloomed yet, but is putting out new growths, so I am hopeful. Two of it's ancestors are M. hirtzii & M macrura, both warm-growing species.

    A couple of other warm-growing hybrids that have been recommended to me are: Angel Tang, Maui Lollipop, Marguerite, and Copper Angel.
