    No special set-up. It is growing under light in my basement, Cathy.

    OMG! This one has been one my wish list for what seems like ages! Unfortunately I almost never see them for sale, and on the rare occasions I do, they're out of my price range. Beautifully grown, Tom!

    I've never grown this, Tom. It looks so delicate. I would have guessed extremely high humidity.
    Just a beautiful plant that is so well grown.
