A nicely dark colored form of this species, stays compact and floriferous. Grown in a pot in a cyp. mix, sunk into a raised bed outside here in Ohio at 40ºN. Midday sun, filtered otherwise.

nice! A squirrel or chipmunk dug my macrathos up this spring.
 
Nice. What cyp mix?
It's Roger Zelazny's from Raising Rarities. Granite grit, perlite, peat (fine, not chunks), and a bit of oystershell. I usually put a layer of gravel or large bark in the bottom to hold the mix in as the holes in the bottoms of the 1 gallon pots are so large.
