    Wow! wonderful plants. I never tried these. What temperatures are you keeping them at? I know they are low light plants (so I hear), but how low? any of these cool growing?
    Well done on the culture of these, just splendid.
    Cheers

    As far as temps--they are in my house (for the moment anyway) so temps are pretty constant. They did get the temp drop with all of my phals--mostly because there was no real way for them not too. I'd say they are intermediate, leaning toward warm growers. Haven't tried cool, so I don't know how they'd do.

    For me, the biggest challenge is moisture--they are mounted so I pretty much have to run them under the faucet everyday.

    As far as light, both do pretty well with very little. The grower's notes said "shade" and even "tolerates deep shade" for the citrata --I haven't actually grown them in the shade but they don't get any direct light. They are hanging underneath the shelf where lots of potted phals sit. They get morning light, but then just very indirect light the rest of the day because of all the pots above them. Before we moved they probably got a little more, which may have helped induce spikes--I don't know.

    Good luck.

    Thanks And same for you.

    I also just located and ordered Angraecum didiery and Ang elephantinum. Couldn't resist, they both look so adorable.

    Thank you Sadie. I will now try one of these and have found one that grows cool apparently!!! so will give it a go.
    Again, thank you for your cultural notes.
    Cheers
