Tom,

Plant them in sphagnum moss and keep the moss wet.  Use distilled or rain
water.  Don't fertilize!!  They like a nice acid environment, thus the
sphagnum.  Give 'em lots of sun.

When it cools off later this year and the plants appear to have died,
don't throw them away - they have just gone dormant.  Keep them in a cool
place, and they'll be back in the spring!
