    Do the 'Red' ones like warmer or cooler than those regular form with pale pink spots??

    Oops! forgot to type this down...in winter if the weather gets toooooo dry, I always water spray them often during daytime (about 3 times a day, or even more), my watering is something like the fog spray everywhere in the area to maintain the moisture in the air, not directly water to the basket. And be careful not to let those water be kept on top of the plant overnight (the very top leafspan).
    This also depends on your growing set up, if you grow them indoor or greenhouse, maybe there's not a dryness problem

    Thanks Lynn. Didn't know Rhy. gigantea can be grown in Northern Thailand or high elevations area. I was under the impression its a hot growing specie only thrive in sea levels. Thanks for the tips.
