    Default Need help with phalaenopsis schilleriana

    I have two phalaenopsis schilleriana mounted and potted, but I'm confused if this Phal need to be completely dry before the next watering or is it the same culture as most Hybrid Phals do?

    I would love to hear your success stories about Phal schilleriana.

    Thank you.

    actually really depends on the environment its planted, but basically waiting for it to dry slightly before the next watering is advisable. i dun have a phal schilleriana but i had 3 giganteas and a bellina. good luck

    I would not let a phal dry completely out. They do not have p-bulbs to retain water and drying completely out could cause damage to the roots and leaves.

    Cheers,

    The mount should be watered daily.
