Plants are usually grown in baskets. Plant grows from cool to cold temperatures in partial shade. Water regularly during the summer, about once every two days and gradually reduce in the winter. Water about once every two to three weeks and gradually increase watering as new roots begin to show. Pot in a well drain medium.

The genus is named after the similar shapes of the sepals and petals.
