Based on its "family tree" it is a sequential bloomer - for a start, it's 2/3 Phal violacea. The other 1/3 of its ancestry are all species with a similar characteristic. (Keep nice and warm...)

Algae growth is OK if the water is going to be retrieved with a hose. But if it feeds into a sprinkler system, clogging is an issue. A little is OK but if it turns into a mat with loose stuff...

I don't think you need the heat mat this time of year... it'll just have the effect of drying out the medium too fast. As for the orientation of the photos... that's a "feature" of the Orchid Board...

I think that it would be wise to spray everything. Soapy water gets a number of pests... basically it drowns any invertebrate that breathes though pores in its body. Of course, it only gets the...

I never had any issues with chilling when I have used alcohol on Phals. I even use it on flowers with no harm. When I use it I'm generally going after mealybugs rather than other pests, but in any...

My Stenoglottis (longifolia and otherwise) are wet, pretty much stay that way. And they get tap water. Not fussy. They also live outside. No particular TLC.

I don't think the pot makes much difference... the tubers are fairly large, so to give them room, a standard-form pot is probably better. Remember, too, that terrestrials are much less picky about...

This is the time of year for new growth on Cymbidiums. So even if you lose the new growths, there will very likely be more - which will also produce new roots. I think that it needs to move...

Sob. caloglossa gets easily to 15 ft. (5 m). If one has a deck, so that the top of the plant is at eye level, it's a great way to display it. Alas, after or 6 years of growing quite well and...

Can't tell from the plant size if it is a mini or not, the term applies to the flowers more than the plant. Mini-phals tend to have more flowers (often on branched spikes), the standard ones have...
