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!
