These are warm-growing terrestrials but still require good air movement. I would try growing a couple of strap leaf paphs first and then get a phrag. Since you live in Arkansas, you probably have the same type of heat and humidity issues we do, though we grow in a greenhouse and not on a windowsill. Good luck.
