definitely likes its toes wet! you could grow yours in moss. most people do. im growing mine using a method called semi-hydroponics. its potted in pure LECA (im using Primagra. the pot has a 2" reservoir in the bottom that stays constantly filled and the LECA wicks the water up and keep the roots moist. i have it outside for summer so i usually flush the whole pot a few times a week. but you dont really need to do that more then once a week

No and no! I paid 8$ including shipping for this plant. Although it was half it's current size, it was still large when I got it. It's unlikely they have specials like that anymore, but it's not expensive.

Same story with mine. I never could get it to bloom. It finally did when I put it in almost full sunlight. It's nice to see you're growing yours in s/h too. I wasn't sure how well this plant would take to it. I might have to move mine over as well.

Neither in my experience. I have mine growing in the front entry to my house and it's doing great despite being largely ignored.

I like creepy things, vines included.

DogFish I watched a few youtube videos about this.

I cut the one from last Christmas down to a node. Mr. $4.99 has a flower so I won't touch it. Mr $1.49 is the weakest of the 3, so I removed the spike at the base. The last one does have a new leaf that is growing since I've watered and repotted.
