    amphirion,
    You have a good chance of success, if you never give up. It took me several years working with P. gypsicola before I managed to grow them well enough to have flowers. It can be challenging to figure out what they need in any particular environment to grow optimally.

'Sethos' alive....so far.....
    I'd be happy to work out a trade with you someday.

    Here's a photo of one, taken in January 2009, that was kept under strong artificial lighting, but completely dry for eighteen months prior to the photo -->


    The crown has split, four-ways. There are lots of old dead leaves and spent flower stalks. Also, the surface of the media has dried and curled up around the base of the plant.

    After this I was able to keep them watered for about a month, then they were completely dry again until this past October (October 2010). Many were still doing well, having continued to grow in Winter leaf mode the entire time. Tough little plants, but those growing under lamps that had failed, perished. Those whose light source remained strong, were likewise, also staying strong. They are now beginning to grow Summer leaves (even though it is Winter) and continuing to grow stronger.

    Media experiment:
    Soon after I planted some small plantlets into all-mineral media with added iron oxide powder, they developed this increased reddish hue to their leaves. Here is a photo of one of them -->
