It seems to do better in low light, similar to Nidularium conditions.

I have grown this one in very strong light - under 50% cloth. Don't really have a secret Miguel; althought I'll trade you secrets for yours for growing xNeo Valli and Hoh augusta please!

Hey Shane, beaut plant!  Micheal, I wonder if it is one of the mountain-growing forms that needs a bit of cold to do its thing?  But then again, maybe not, if it does well for Lisa in HI.  Just a thought.  Huh

Cheers, Paul

Shane nice Wittrockia. There are big clumps of Ho.augusta in Mt Cootha BG in Brisbane. They are in a far bit of shade and flowering well. I have mine in full sun which is ok. but I might move it to a more shady spot.

Michael are you growing your augusta in sun or shade.

Cheers
