For what it's worth, I regularly clean the leaves of my plants (hard water stains, dust, and those damn spider mites).

I use 14% white vinegar meant for household cleaning; it's super cheap and...

It's likely that this is the same plant, and some stressful event like a crown injury led it to grow several basal shoots.

Quite the contrary actually; you can safely assume that Phal with mottled leaves appreciate high light.
Long days and high light is what triggers blooms for pulcherrima, so you'll (most likely) see...

I don't have much at this point unfortunately, I got rid of some stuff before moving.
Maybe Phal Little Sister, but I might cross it with Phal lobbii.

Don't count on it; it's related to gigantea and doweryensis, those don't do keikis!

I could ask for you if there are seedlings still available if you're interested.

Interesting, do you have the links to those threads? Doing it is common for the related Phal stuartiana, but I've never heard of schilleriana growing new plants from roots!

Those are just out of flask seedlings, they don't have their adult characteristics yet. They can very well be bellina, no issue here.

How much did you pay for them?

The Malaysian form of violacea is a natural, regional variation distinct enough to be recognized; but it's not officially described.

Maybe on the deciduous Phal, that have a very different leaf structure.
