    it will have a pond as well. Lets hope for the best.
    Remember Randy to keep the lindenii upright specially if it has been newly replanted. The plant likes it this way and it is a growing technique shared to me by the masters (something to do with the food and the sugars stored in the leaves and/or roots). Once the lindenii is actively growing showing new roots and has established itself then it is ok to turn it hanging upside down but for me I prefer to keep it upright. Also lindenii likes the cool and moist (around its roots) environment specially at night where it should get a nightly drop in temperature for it to survive.

    I notice here in Manila, lindenii leaves slowly get smaller and smaller until the leaves drop and then nothing is left. I've kept my lindenii by the water tank where it is constantly cool and humid and out of direct sunlight but still I notice is slow to respond and grow. I'm just lucky that I am able to grow it ...... but of course no flowers.

    Thanks Jojo, I actually have it potted so that moisture can cool the plant a
    bit. Also its in the wash area so humidity is quite high there. I took a peak
    at the roots the other day and notice some new roots are forming....
