    i agree, i thought it was a goldfish plant when i saw one of these. the seller talked me out of it, said it was impossible to keep alive. i have regretted not getting it ever since. these are so different than any other orchid i've ever seen. does it need a lot of attention? i skipped it because i did not think i would spray it everyday like it was suposed to need, and i envisioned it drying up and croaking on me... but now i have a few i have to spray every morning to keep alive, and i seem to be doing it. please tell us how you grow, under lights? greenhouse? it would be nice to hear someone's experience with this one.

    I have 2 of this minies: one in a pot and one that is mounted. The one in a pot in not doing quite well - it is growing, but no blooms so far. This one that is mounted is doing great.
    I keep plant in a little cooler temperatures with bright light. I water - spray them every morning druing growth period. After blooming season they rest a bit, I don't mist them every day but twice or three times/week and when a period of grows begins, I start to spray more often.
