Mr.Fakename would probably know a lot about it. I think it's very similar to Phal gigantea in culture, and just as difficult.

well actually, we owe mr. f. a big thanks for putting us in contact with another localish grower and we have now a mature one in our collection. i have been in contact with the previous owner of the plant and he has given us his basic culture details.

really after talking with him, they don't seem all too picky. but i know how that goes.

tried to pot photos of the plant yesterday but ob wa not happy with me and i gave up after like 3 attempts. maybe i will try again today. the spikes are really wierd looking!

still fishing for any more experiences with this species. thanks ob!

I've been extremely busy and missed that thread, so much for a fast reply!


I have been growing seedlings of this species for the past 6 months or so, my experience is pretty limited.

Little is known about the origins of Phal doweryensis, as it was described from plants ex situ, in the USA. Reportedly comes from the Rundum area of Sabah, Borneo; where a synonym of doweryensis was found: Phalaenopsis rundumensis.

It is related to gigantea, but required less light and less heat. Direct sunlight should be avoided as it will toast the leaves very easily, and excessive heat will kill even a robust plant.

From what I have gathered, it a pretty simple species to grow IF NOT DISTURBED. It is very important to give plants very stable conditions and let them get established.
They will sulk endlessly if temps go higher than 30°C for several days in a row, if temperatures fluctuate too much (especially sudden drops), and when repotted or if they have to get acclimatized.

Other than that, simple species Phal care, don't let them dry too much, no rest period.

Here's one of mine, a strong mature plant that comes from the same grower tmoney bought his new baby from.

I'm surprised it adapted so well and fast from a greenhouse to a Dutch windowsill, definitely a great plant worth its price.

Only downside is the less than pleasant scent, reminiscent of the "burnt electrical cable" smell some gigantea have.
