Hi. I only have ONE so that is all I have to base it on. Not hard to keep alive but mine gets a lot of brown tips, not sure if it is fertilizer burn or some other reason. Someone suggested growing it cooler but I have not tried it. Mine has only bloomed once so far and it bloomed for a month but I didn't keep it in optimal light the whole time because I wanted to display it. It puts out new growths like crazy so I will see if those bloom.

Thanks for the info. Do you know what amount of light they prefer? I have a little one in bloom but I bought it in bloom. It is prom 'guttata' it's yellow with faint brown spots. I have it with my paphs now. Do you think that light is right or should it have more. I could put it with my catts.

I found that they are thirsty little buggers.

Thanks again. This is a new one for me.
