    Mine are in the hottest/brightest part of the greenhouse, which this summer has ranged 75-102. This summer has been brutal but they are doing fine. I am thinking of moving them back under 20% more shade for the next couple of months and see if they get a little greener/happier.

    You can get moss from eBay, and Plants from Paph Paradise.

    I got mine from Suzy through EBay (suzysslippersfl). I don't remember exactly what I paid for it, but I remember thinking it was fairly reasonable at the time. If you are looking seriously, it might be worth reaching out.

    Cute, I grew out two flasks of moonlight & stars x self. Gave away/sold all but one plant, which is now 4 mature growths and 6 or 7 half mature growths & leads. Hasn't bloomed yet. Probably not chilling it enough at night in winter *shoves it in the fridge*.
