Culture Notes from Donor: Parent plant: Temperature range CI (58-75°F). The plant is grown on a small block of tree fern. It seems to like to dry quite a bit between waterings, as the roots grow much better and attach to the block.
 
Comments: Parent plant: Small plant at 5 years old. The branched flower spike with 15 or more blooms is much larger than the plant. It blooms on each new growth.
