    I too just got this beautiful plant.
    Soil mix: equal parts peat moss, perlite, and sand. Top 1/4" or so sand.
    I grow it in a terrarium. The temp gets to the mid 80's. I have read, and some growers I know keep this plant very warm 95 degrees and up. So I took some temp readings of my tank. About 2" below my Sunpack CF lighting, the temps get to the mid 90's. So I raised my plant up close to the lights, not for the added light, but for the added heat.
    I've had it a month and a half and it's doing great.

    Thanks.

    It really too off after I got it. Seemed not to have any shipping shock at all.
    Here's a picture of when I first got it in a 2" pot.
    The plant is a lot bigger and fuller as you can tell from the first picture I posted. I guess I must be doing something right.

    mine didnt have any shipping shock either. give me another two months and maybe ill catch up mine isnt as close to the lights but is being kept at about a constant 87 degrees with 80% humidity with a 12/12 light schedule placed 10 inches from 2 T8's, these were to be my "get it adjusted" conditions but it seems to love it so i aint moving it.

    Thanks guys for the info! I might just have to clean out that fish tank I am using for a stock tank of azzola and use it to keep humidity up for some plants and just leave the top open water in the bottom and plants eased up so they do not sit in the water. Keep the water level up so there is constan humidity around the plants. Hmm might work for some ghost orchids too. Next experiment!! Why didn't I think of something like this for the ceph I think I just killed. Arggg
