Default Phil’s on small palm trees in Florida

Newbie here
Would like any helpful hints on care of the Phil’s
I have about 15 on small palm trees and they are doing OK
I have had no previous experience and just doing what I think is best
Please give any advice on Spanish Moss on orchid base.
Also advice on watering, fertilizer, and anything else particular to orchids on small palms

where are you more specifically?

the phals do fine on trees with no care as long as they get rained on occasionally and arent in full sun. draping them in spanish mossis a great way to add a little shade to their leaves.

if you do nothing they will be fine. if you want to fertilize them and and add a light probiotic regimin they will bloom a little more often and more strongly but they are a favorite for how little care they require once mounted and established
All the ways I grow are dictated by the choices I have made and the environment in which I live. Please listen and act accordingly

You posted another thread with this question but you wrote Phals. Any chance in this thread you meant Philodendrons?
