Hi doc,
This one had been sitting on my front porch since February when I got it; it’s sort of my quarantine area. It is planted in sphagnum and is due for repotting when it’s done showing off. I try to keep it moist. It has been in fairly bright indirect light - about what I would grow a hardy phrag hybrid in. I have another one that I got a year or two ago that has been doing well next to a Stanhopea tigrina.
I moved this one to its new temporary location to allow the inflorescence to develop properly and I stuck a dragonfly clip on the edge to try to train the spike outward a bit (the tail of the dragonfly lift the spike up and out just enough). As you can see from the 4 in. pot in a pot, the trick is potting it so the flowers make it over the edge of the pot and then keeping it somewhere it can bloom pendantly. I plan to try to repot it into some sort of basket.
