I saw one in Berkeley, in a very humid greenhouse. See

its habitat in that greenhouse.

I got mine from http://www.tropiflora.com/, in a 2.5 inch pot.
Apparently quite vigorous, but does not look anything like the one in
Berkeley. Perhaps it is still very juvenile - the longest leaves are
about 5 inches long.
