These plants require very humid conditions. The phrase "extremely wet
culture" may be misleading....these are not aquatic plants. The trick is
keeping as high humidity as possible without rotting the plant. Fog not mist
would be very helpful. A 'fog chamber' on a smaller scale would be helpful.
These plants should be treated like epiphytes as to their potting mix and
container. A slated basket with an extremly fast draining mix should be a
start. It is still not likely that this plant will do well without constant
high ( 80% +) humidity.

This is not the plant of Exotica or the front cover a a long ago Aroideana.
