    I keep mine under a two tube shop light with a bunch of small orchids and some short Neps. They'd all like more light, but that's what I have and that's what they get.

    I grow them in a mix of LFS & volcanic (sponge) rock in 4" tall pots with packing peanuts on the bottom. That potting mix encourages terrific root systems and allows plants to tolerate wetting and drying without root damage. I do ~ the same for Neps and Sarrs, except Sarrs don't get packing peanuts and sit in water. And large Neps and Sarrs get larger pots.

    I water them a couple times per week by floating their pots in a dishpan of rain or distilled (dehumidifier) water. And that's how they spend the winter.

    I grow mine on a windowsill with drier soil. It grows non trapping leaves throughout the winter and goes back in the greenhouse in spring.

    And I need to write more carefully, because Sarrs don't spend the winter indoors. They stay outside under a deep pile of leaves.

    Mine is outdoors year round. It gets cooler, wetter winters, and cool nights all year round. It might touch freezing overnight once or twice a year. It seems to grow pretty steadily all year long, but I've only had it out for a year and a half now. Just this summer the pitcher count has about doubled, and the largest yet has grown.

    They get about 4 hours of direct sunlight, and are otherwise in bright shade. I water when the water in the saucer has dried up, though in winter they get a good deal of rain.
