I have mine growing in semi-hydro culture, so it gets water and fertilizer
year round. Temperatures range from lows of mid-50's in the winter, with
max around 70-75, to overall about 10-15 warmer in the summer. Heavy
shade.

Also either spray with Physan or other fungicide/bactericide regularly or
make sure ther is NO water in the leaves after watering. This probably also
goes for Chondrorhyncha, Cochleanthes, and Bollea. Otherwise, they're easy
and pretty.

I meant to also say, while Ray has his in SH, I find they also grow well in
a seedling mix, paph mix, spaghnum (up to 6" pot), or just about anything
that will retain water and not dry out fast.
