    for a nursery operator, after the blooms is gone....they would have a hard time selling it. and also because of this, i am having a hard time looking for one here
    I know it takes a certain kind of grower to appreciate these types or orchids. I love how weirdly alien they look I've been looking for vendors online to order one or two from because I can't get them around here. I'm wondering though, I may not have the proper conditions to grow these guys. Guess I'll just have to admire your photos

    Could you move it indoors close to a very bright window (east or southeast) that could still provide bright light but indoors are usually cooler.

    but for my house setting, if i were to move it near a window still, the light hours it gets will be similar to the one in my shade house. less than 4 hours of sunlight. the only way i can think of is to get one of the fan with mister to bring the temperature down but i dun think i want to invest in that.
