Gardeners' Notes:

This is a rare plant from Rwanda. It only gets to be about a foot tall, and likes filtered light. Dislikes heat and dryness.
We keep ours misted and it seems happy.

We planted it in a orchid mix (non-soil) because of its epiphytic nature. It's definitely not frost-hardy.
It looks cute as a bug's ear on the window ledge.
