Re: scale

Hi Julia:

P. Superbum prefer to be kept on the dry side. 
However, after mounting in Sphagnum, I would keep the
plant moist for the first two weeks as the plant
acclimates to it's new home then damp to moist after
that.  A very, very light feeding will help as well.

One more thing.  P. Superbum sunburns easily so
trickling light to shade is preferred.

Good Luck!
