I use a mix of cling wrap, 3M micropore tape or nothing at all depending on what I have on hand.

That thread is a (old) sticky, maybe you should start a new one with the rest of your questions!

Phal pallens that have a similar lip are arguably not pallens to begin with.

I don't think it's a pallens, the lip doesn't fit the description.

It's probably something like Phalaenopsis cornu-cervi x Phalaenopsis micholitzii crossed back with hieroglyphica.
