    this one is fairly easy to grow, just dont let it dry out completely, treat it like a phal, maybe more light though.

    How exciting to own a newly discovered plant! That must be interesting... I was going to say what a cute thing it is...but for you it must be very special! Congrats on such a find.

    thanks connie

    it was just a coincidence that when i saw it at a flea market i find it cute and this was the last of their stock so i grab it immediately, never knowing it was a price find.
