Many thanks my friends.I have no separated growing area, my experience with this sp, that the secret is high humidity and rare waterings.It is very sensitive about rot, and does not like excessive watering.

This is a wonderful species but very challenging in my growing setup, which can get too cool in the winter.

Thanks for posting yours so I can enjoy it!

Very interesting perspective of yours. I find them loving water under lights (seems to like semi water culture) in warm nights.

But I’m a newbie in this species so I reserve my say until I rebloom them.

My Friend, here is an in situ pic.I wiill take few pics tomorrow about mine ones, I grow them in pot, but pot size is very small so media can dry quickly and I put their pots onto another pot, so they cant take water from bottom.

Your method mimics nature better than me lol.

Are you growing in humid greenhouse? What are your night temperatures?
