What, this isn't good enough for you?

The only thing I'd recommend is NOT to let it get down to the 50s in the winter. They prefer somewhat warmer temps with a small bark orchid mix. You can try, but I doubt they would grow well in semi-hydro (since it seems like that's what you grow in)

Hope this helps!

Thanks Jason, that's most of the info, I'm just trying to get it in a pdf format. I should learn how to use the scanner at work and just bring the article in.

This is the one plant I don't plan on growing in S/H. It's doing too well in a fine bark mix for me to want to mess with it. I did repot it in a bonsai pot after it bloomed the last time so as to convince it to spread out a bit more and I have five new growths (total of 15). Now if I can just get more than one blooming at a time, I'll be all set!
