    You have a fairly easy growing paph. It can easily grow under flourescent lights, as long as the lights are close, or if it gets light (but not direct sun) from a window. This plant needs to get almost dry before watering again. (stick your finger into the potting media down to your second joint, if it feels dry, water). Pot size is determined by how big the plant gets. Don't worry about gasses.... Repot when the plant outgrows the pot or the potting media starts to break down (rots or gets soft). Paphs like to have other plants around as that helps to boost humidity. This plant will bloom once a year when young, on the new growth, and as it gets big, it will put out multiple growths and bloom on each one.

    I've got a Raisin Pie crossed with a Macabre and it's been no problem, even for me. They sometimes get a twisty flower stem and according to a paph. expert I met at an orchid show, that's not unusual for the Raisin pie types. Mine just bloomed with a stem that did an entire loop so the bloom ended upright just above the foliage. It almost sings "Feed me Seymour!!"
