Checking the OB used to be the way I started my day. I've gotten away from that, it had become a "distracting" habit. And I've been despondent over my failures lately. Like you, I think others might...

From my experience: Mine got bright light under a light covering in summer. Generously watered and food when I remembered.

Mine is in a moss mix, never dries out. Lots of air circulation. It grows like a weed, blooms like crazy, and still has crappy foliage. Expect that.

Ok. I think I am reasonably careful in my culture. However, so much mechanical damage, or insect damage CAN look like disease, my head starts to spin. After this post, I pitched 3 plants. I have been...

If you cut the flower stem, you'll most likely get keikis. On the other hand, they can be feet long and unsightly. I'd cut it, pot it up, and let it do "it's own thing." These are not tidy plants to...

It depends on the medium, watering etc. As a rule of thumb you allow for 1 to 2 years growth in the pot. You would not be out of line to repot every year or year-and-a-half but there's no hard fast...
