-tons of wind and air movement

let me know if there are any other factors i missed that are relevant

Temps 70-90įF?
RH 70-100%?

I got mine about the same time but it met with an accident that broke off the larger of two growths. It's growing out and I guess it's getting the proper light. It could do with warmer temps in winter and the humidity is a problem. Its roots are in a plastic grid with coconut fiber (it's an OLSO plant) but I should up the watering.

Those are the right ranges for here. Maybe a bit hotter.

Thatís horrible. I hate damaging plants.

Do you most it or take it down and soak?

With coir, i find it repels water for a while before it absorbs any.

Also, do you have access to shredded multch?

I have wrapped that around the roots of my mounted phals and stays wet for a long time...might up the humidity a bit. Maybe just at the bottom of the mount?

What is an OSLO plant?

I use a sprayer, sometimes a squirter (wash bottle) as it's awkward to soak. I haven't done it but I've heard people use a drop of dish detergent in the water as an un-repellent (I can't come up with a word).

I'd love to get my hands on long gorilla hair (redwood mulch)! I've only found it in bulk and I don't know any landscaper that uses it.

OLSO is Ooi Leng Sun Orchids out of Malaysia. Everyone should follow Michael Aaorchids (Michael Ooi, the founder) on Facebook, he is planting a mountain with orchids. His son Ben comes over for the major shows. And they ebay from FL.

aaorchids dot com is their site but I can't get to it right now, maybe hijacked.

Edit: wetting agent? Third parties sell their plants also. And pic of the set up (ignore the Schoenorchis?).

Credit where do but it's in Japanese but the link is there.

Hahaha terrific resource and knowing they ship from my back yard is a huge plus!

I think we will have buds opening tomorrow. I was just outside and they literally look swollen

Interesting. That plant shape and growth habit looks suspiciously like my paraphalaenopsis denevii.
Ray's right. Be patient and give the taxonomists time to work their magic. It won't be alone long.
