Default Phal. Sogo Vivien 'Golden Vivien'

This plant is rather weak, and has been ever since I got it (it had no viable roots when it came, and it has been a struggle to get it to grow). I would love to have a more vigorous one, and I might get one one day, but for now, this little guy, which only has three leaves, stays.

Nicely veined blooms. I wonder how they came up with "golden"?

Lovely color. I think it's variegated, that would be the golden I think. Look at the tip of the leaf.

Oops, yes, it's variegated. I totally forgot to mention that.

I have a similar phal sogo vivien with golden stripes on leaves at home in the states (I am in Costa Rica for the winter) and I find it difficult to grow. I keep a seedling heating pad under it and let it almost dry out before watering it. It's in sphagnum moss. It is now in the care of my son and a friend so hopefully it will be fine when I get home in May.
Jag hoppas at din go bra!

Never saw a vivien with only 2 flowers, but the blooms still look pretty. Since it's rather weak, if I were you, I would cut the spike off, let the plant concentrate on new growing and saving more energy for the next spike.

Nurseries have equipments to control the temperature, ventilation and humidity, phals can grow very well in sphanum moss. Due to I don't know the environment for your vivien, I can't give correct suggetion. Air circulation would be the first priority, it seems that putting it on a seedling heating pad is not a good idea. It would be better to place it on a mesh rack or hang it up. Another way to improve air circulation is to open more holes on the clear plastic pot.

I did cut several extra holes in the pot, and I even removed some of the sphag as it seemed to tightly packed. It doesn't seem to ever dry out unless I have it on the seedling mat. It does have good air circulation with small fans.
In any case I am not caring for it myself right now and i will have to see how it is doing when I return to the states in May.
