Dear David,

It grows in nature as an understory plant in tropical jungle, so IDEAL
conditions might be air as close to 100% humidity as possible (mist), keep
soil well-drained but moist, temps in the high 80`s, highish (low 80`s) temp
at night also, and bright light/no sun! Circ. of air with a fan would be
good also. I heard stories of a grower using a contraption of a mist/wall
of circ. water that cooled and humidified his g/house that grew these to a
giant size, he amazed people when he exibited them at the Aroid show in
Miami (before my time!).

Good luck.
