    Hi Ewa,

    I grow this paph along side my vini paphs. No special treatment. It gets fertilizer once a week during the warm months and once every two weeks in the cooler months. It is potted in a small bark mix that contains: small red wood bark, charcoal, sponge rock, and small coconut husks to retain some moisture. It recieves bright, filtered light all day and has constant air movement.

    Good luck.

    Cheers,
    BD
