    Gorgeous bloom, Christian! I've found the Proms to be rather difficult to bloom .... especially when not in a terrarium.

    Yes, I was told this from the vendor as well I hope I can give it the right conditions - I put it right next to a computer fan to keep air circulation high since they are very prone to fungus attacks (I heard ), Humidity is running at 80-85%, temp is around 20-25 degrees celcius. I think I might have to provide some more light though since it is growing way in the bottom of the vivarium and not much of the light reaches it - I just have to figure out how to do it How does that sound?

    I LOVE this promenaea. I actually put a picture of one on my computer wallpaper because I love them so much....well, I think this picture is of a promenaea. I took this photo at the NYC Bot Garden. They are really hard to care for? Well, there goes my dreams of blooming a promenaea on my windowsill... :-)
