I've occasionally seen them in displays at shows so I know it's possible. Just wondering how insanely difficult they may or may not be to grow and bloom indoors, & what care that would entail.

I have this plant but mine is planted outdoors in the shade garden. It is native to virginia and requires a cold dormancy below 40F for the winter months in order to bloom. I do have one that I am atempting in a pot this year. So far so good. 50%leaf litter, 25% peat, 25%pearlite&charcoal. It flowered but not as good as the ones in the garden but that could have been from the shock of transplanting it from the garden this spring. Water well when in growth & bloom. water less in inactive months. Winter in a cold window or fridge. I can't tell you about fert or hormones because I haven't used any on this plant yet to date. Common name is yellow fringe orchid & I believe it gets polinated by mosquitos or flies, Both seem to go to it.
