    Hey Ray I got mine from Terry Partin. Last time I was in his area he had a fair number of them. He does flasks too. Mine took some adjusting to settle in its pot but now it’s putting out stolons left and right and if I weight the stolon carefully with a smooth heavy river stone, it forms roots and digs in.

    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.
