Phals typically aren't fussy about repotting. (I haven't seen that Phal schilleriana is any fussier than others and I have several of them.) So there is really no need to speculate... pull it out of...

Changing the orientation of a spiking Phal won't hurt the spike - what it likely will do is to simply make the presentation less appealing by introducing a "twist" to the spike as it chases the...

I suspect that LECA in a bark mix is doing the same thing that pumice or perlite or any other inorganic is doing - opening up the mix somewhat more, and also tending to keep it aerated over time as...

Totally true... when I said "liquid fertilizer" I was assuming that it started out as powder and got "distributed" in water. Sorry about the confusion. (Also, contrast to the time-release pellets)

First of all, of all of the factors in orchid culture, fertilizer is the least important. Get the other factors correct (temperature, light, potting media, watering schedule) correct and then worry...

The newer breeding lines for truly red Phals (I suspect that Phal speciosa/tetraspis are involved) stay red because of those genetics. I think that these may be more of the summer-blooming type,...

I don't grow Den-phals either... because I can't give them the conditions they need (warmth and bright light), too many other things that do well for me.

As far as the color of the Phal goes, a good bit of that is genetics - the red (and peach or art-shade) in many of these is really yellow overlaid on lavender. And the yellow does tend to fade as...

Don't try to remove all of the old medium - Some may just fall out, or you can rinse under the faucet or blast with a hose, pick out what comes easily. That approach will also pretty much wash out...
