Default Sedeira (Phalaenopsis) japonica

This is a fragrant species from Japan. I grow it like Neofinetia falcata.

Since I don't grow neos, I have to ask you to flesh out the care for me. I was told to grow it like a phal. At what age did yours bloom?

“Grow it like Neos”.

-This plant is in NZ Sphagnum Moss.
-It can take cool temperatures.
-In the Winter time, water early in the day and allow it to completely dry out—moss should be “crispy”.
-In the Summer time, keep it hydrated. It can tolerate heat but must be brought into cooler temperatures if the outside day time temperature stays over 90F for several days—it suffers from too much heat, whereas regular tropical Phalaenopsis will love the heat.
-like Neos, grow it in brighter light, closer to Vanda light.

I have had this plant for three years. It was in bud when I got it and it has bloomed every year. This is a small plant compared to regular Phalaenopsis.

I was growing it in the greenhouse window with my phals. Mainly north light but brighter. I moved it to an East window and I grew a root. I'll move it again tomorrow.

Ah ha! That explains why mine is sort of limping along. It looks good but I might have gotten one new leaf out it this year. No blooms either. I had to sacrifice the light and grow it shadier when the temps started soaring in mid June through September. It stays over 90 for about 4 months.... I need to rethink this one. I may be gifting myself a little exoterra for Christmas to grow some of my minis. This might be happier with the summer temps in that set up but I would still wonder if it was getting enough light:/

Gorgeous blooms, it looks like a happy plant. I have no luck with mine, but it's still early in the blooming season. I got it early last year, had no blooms, so this year it's been in very bright light. Fingers crossed for a spike....

Another consideration may be day-night temperature differential. Mine live outside, summer may get into the 90's F but evenings are cooler (even in the worst part of summer, low 70's F) I grow mine shady, mounted or basket with minimal media (like a Vanda), somewhat shady. They can tolerate winter temperatures to near freezing if it warms up somewhat by day (which it does where I live) but I'm sure that isn't necessary.
