    Question Bifrenaria care

    I fell in love with a picture I saw of Bifrenaria harrisoniae. The book that contained the picture seemed to indicate it would be fairly easy to care for. It said 'light shade and intermediate temperatures' and that it makes a good houseplant. Before I go out searching for one, however, I wondered if anyone here had any tips. Is this one as easy as it sounds, or would a newbie be in over her head?

    Intermediate temps are right for the growing period ,cooler winter temps are founf to be the order of the day and high light.Don't be dismayed by the sun burnt,tatty look of the foliage as this has been found to indicate suffient light.
