Rescue: Phal. White Dream 'V3' AM/AOS Male
Default Rescue: Phal. White Dream 'V3' AM/AOS

I bought the large standard white-flowered Phalaenopsis White Dream 'V3' AM/AOS a few years back as a very inexpensive sale plant from Orchids by Hausermann. They usually have them in the sale area. It came as a very large plant in a 6" pot, much larger than I expected, with multiple old, cut flower spikes.

It grew well here. Unfortunately pack rats think it's tasty. They ate off most of the roots, chewed leaves and transected the stem. This is what I have now.

I'm going to rejuvenate it. I'll post photos from time to time of how it's doing.

Today I trimmed the stem. I will soak it for a few hours in a solution containing KelpMax, Inocucor and about 50ppm nitrogen 20-20-20 fertilizer. I think Inocucor is no longer available, but First Ray's carries a probiotic replacement.

Then I will put it into semi/hydroponics. This method works extremely well for me here with Phals. The ones not rat-chewed almost always carry at least 8 leaves, and flower well.

Pack rats are not God's little creatures! 🥺 This will be an interesting experience for our newbies! Good thinking as usual!

Here it is in a S/H pot, a 1 quart yogurt container I drilled. The oldest leaf has already turned yellow and fallen off. There is a piece of perlite that fell into the pot:

And here is another Phal whose name tag was stolen by the pack rats after they chewed it. As you can see, it is in spike. Maybe I will recognize it. Unfortunately I had a few unnamed new hybrid Phals, so I may never know what this is. The cactus in the background is known as Deamia testudo, though it has been moved into genus Selenicereus. The red stem arching up is from a Hoya:

Hi E.S.

Hope your phal is recovering nicely. I just viewed this phal variety on haussermans yesterday. I have been looking for the largest white phal commercially available and am curious if this variety ranks with the largest Whites. Do you or anyone else know or have a variety to recommend ? Thanks!!

Those pack rats are unbelievable! Wouldn't be surprised if they eat the plastic pot too.

Thank you Dolly! Hopefully I can get it on discount like the OP did. I only have room for one Phal now and I want the real big classic white one.

This is one of the largest. A few other vendors list newer and what they say are better big white Phals, but this one is as tough as cheap steak.

I think there is confusion out there between Phal White Dream 'V3' AM in 2013 and Phal Sogo Yukidian 'V 3' HCC in 2014. I am seen the names even partly combined.

Sogo Yukidian was registered in 1998 while White Dream is an older cross with a registration in 1987. Sogo Yukidian is about 1 cm larger than White Dream in Orchid Pro.
