    Acquired as a sell-off of a collection on this forum, the poor thing has struggled through inattention and moving. It seems to like the heat and humidity out on my north-facing deck, with no direct sun whatsoever, and has finally bloomed. Just two blossoms, but I like it.

    Yep.

    Unfortunately, at the time I got it, the only LECA I had available was this irregular gray stuff I got from Hydrofarm that apparently doesn't wick all that well. After it goes out of bloom, I'll change that to Hydroton.

    So do I! The upper flowers dorsal looks immensely broad - angle of photography or is this the case irl, too?
