    Is the culture on this similar to Diplocaulobium spp. such as tentaculatum and phalangillum? Also, how large does the plant get? Thanks!

    My plant is mature and just under 18" tall. Right now it is potted in coconut chunk, but will put it back into a fine bark mix when it is repotted. It has done fine in the coconut, but I've had trouble with some plants in it and have discontinued using it. I think that was the batches of coconut or how I washed it. I grow it potted, but have never tried it mounted. It is currently growing at 56 minimum night, but I have grown it at 50 and low 40's. For some reason I tried a cold dry rest and one point. It did OK, but not as well as warmer and year round moisture.
