Hi Barb !!!
It's settling in great. I love it !
The roundish leaves with veining that you see in the background to the right is a Hoya cv. Noel. To the left is a Tillandsia whose name escapes me right now. It flushes a brilliant red in late summer.
Glad to see you here !

I thought that was a hoya. I would have a bunch of them if I lived in your climate. They are a bit hard for me to control, vining all over. Thanks for the welcome. Barb

nice looking plant mj!
how large are the leaves? also am curious what type of soil mix you're using and where you're keeping it over winter?

Sky I put it in a 50/50 mix of Orchid bark with extra coarse perlite and potting soil. It's what I use for most of the Hoya's and Anthuriums or really any epiphytes. Following Barb's lead and keeping this one inside the house during the coldest part of winter here. ( Jan- March for the most part) Right now it's on my screened front porch. Haven't decided yet but most likely under our barn overhang in summer, stays cooler there, but is protected from too windy conditions etc.

i've been planting my strictly indoor epiphytes in similar mix, with may be just a little less bark (21% of the mix, with rest equally divided between peat/coir peat and perlite) - since i have to wick them to supply water when i am away for long periods of time.
but i am always very curious what people do in florida in mostly outdoors conditions.
i just spotted an interesting wall-mount of A. clarinervium in one of my pics: had to enlarge a lot to see it.
it's in the botanical garden conservatory. seems that it's growing sideways in a frame, attached perhaps with chicken wire? and coir fiber webbing like they use for wire baskets.
