Acriopsis indica care

Hi, anyone growing this one? I think its supposed to be an easy plant in the right conditions (arent they all, lol).

Ive had one for several months, having seen quite a few photos that show no leaves, i'm wondering if its deciduous etc and how mch water it should have in winter, and also a good minimum temperature to work to?

Any advice?

Wow! This is one of which I am completely ignorant. Never heard of it but curious enough now to look it up. Good luck getting some answers.

Well after 4 years we have an update! First plant died and we got another one. That one also started to go downhill, out of desperation i put it in the house in a terrarium and its now growing really well. Maybe the humidity helps, but also maybe the higher average (its only warmer at night) temperature helps.

I can only think that either the description of its altitudinal range is wrong (upto 1800m) or the clone(s) we got are from much lower altitudes...
