This hybrid is 75% Phal pulcherrima, which is a primarily terrestrial/lithophyte species which takes a lot more light that most Phals, with some populations growing in full sun. Bright indirect...

I'll have to go down to the basement to check the product label, but I think it's Sanium, from Protect Garden (Bayer).

I have a neem oil product that I'll try now and through the winter months.

With good care, it might actually bloom within the coming year. A lot of Phals reach blooming size when still relatively small and immature looking. I think my schilleriana was only slightly larger...

I did mention it in my post. ;)
Also, not sure what you mean by " these plants" as the OP does not mention what the Phal in question is, it might be something that gets rather large once mature.

I don't think mine is chlorinated either. My tap water is purer than yours, probably because I live on the south edge of the Veluwe with the poor, acidic, sandy soils. The pH is also high (8) but I...
