Are you growing your U.calycifida as an epiphyte or not? I found a lot of conflicted informations on the net. Mine is growing happily in living sphagnum moss, putting out a lot of new leaves. I compared it's growth with a plant of my friend, who keeps it in pure peat. Sphagnum wins! But, what's interesting - it is said that U.calycifida is not an epiphyte in the nature, but a terrestrial one:)

I've never heard of it being an epiphyte..
This post is confusing..
To clarify, an epiphyte is a plant that grow onto another plant for support..(Not for parasitic reasons)

Yes, it's a terrestrial species but it obviously grows better when kept in LFS, what's interesting:)
