I've had this phal hybrid for a while and it's been a monster growing tons of new roots. I trimmed off a few dead ones and disinfected it shortly after I bought it.

I keep it fairly warm (81 F in the day and low 70's at night) and 60-65% average humidity and it's finally making a bud. There's also another spike growing underneath one of the leaves. I don't think this one is fragrant, but we will see.

It seems to really like pure, loosely packed sphagnum. When I repot it next time, I think I'll mix in some perlite.

Looks like a very happy and healthy Phal! I got one a couple months ago, and I'm impatiently waiting for it to spike one day. I thought I'd have to wait a while since the plant is rather small, but yours doesn't seem that big either. How long are the leaves?

Thanks! The longest leaf is 7 inches. I'd say it's medium sized relative to what I've seen available. I have a few other species and primary hybrids and this one is by far the largest I own. Most of my smaller ones are spiking as well, but are a lot slower to develop.
