Asking the real questions here!

Who spent the money on production? Is there a special streaming platform for weird restaurant and elevator music? Are those tunes eligible for awards?

Folding away from the ovary is a good sign. Change in colour is also an indicator, and if you look at the column it should be swollen.

Here's a Phal violacea 3 days after pollination.

Meh, it's just a headstart for people with no prior experience with Phal species.

I took a look at some publications, and micropropagation using axillary buds seems to be very common and effective, much more than leaf or root culture.

I think it's what you're describing, right?...

RH around the house is sub 30%, but part of my plants are in a heavily planted, semi closed terrarium. I'd say around 80% in here.

I was making the exact same observation Roberta, I guess it's a worldwide phenomenon. Some populations that usually bloom around the end of March didn't even start to make their rosettes.

There are some massive plants in the Angraecum family. Eburneum, sesquipedale and their hybrids are just nonsense. Smell fantastic too!

I'm not sure this one is cloned on a global scale. I think the populations are seed grown, hence (part of) the price.

And it's such a popular hybrid, the reason for it to be expensive is easy...

Actually, mariae and bastianii are amongst the easiest Phal species. The only downside (?) with them is that a happy plant will turn into a space hog monster.
