I know Jim and Ursula both have this plant, and water daily. Is this one watered daily also? http://andysorchids.com/Search...) I really want this one to succeed. Confused

Two tips from me: mount it on a piece of wood and water or at least mist daily. It also likes bright light, even some sun.

Yes, I do pretty much the same here. Full sun here in NJ, mounted on a piece of wood ( I use a good piece of wood from an old Blueberry bush) and watered daily.

That's what I figured. I was very surprised at Andy's instructions. I suppose that since he is a stones throw from the sea it would make some difference, but I wouldn't think that much. It is mounted, and gets bright to full sun. At least you agree on that.

Don't get me started on Andy.
