Dear David,

It grows in nature as an understory plant in tropical jungle, so
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
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.
