    I agree. I find that my sharry baby needs lots of water. Since you also have a clay pot i think that it can dry faster too. (Now I need to bloom mine!)

    to the above - water this guy more, maybe 2x a week especially if its getting direct sun in that western window. Its light requirements are similar to a phal, but its water requirements are greater bc they don't have such thick roots like phals...they are thinner roots and they dry out faster. Maybe some misting too, and keep the air moving to prevent rot when you increase the watering.
