    Sorry to disappoint you, but Phals are so heavily hybridized, that it's nearly impossible to give an accurate visual identification. Flowers can look amazingly similar and have completely different breeding lines. Don't even attempt to guess - without an accurate tag, your plant joins the legions of the NOIDs. (No identification.) It's ok though - we can still love NOIDs!

    Dend rigidum doesn't like wet feet and is difficult to maitain in a pot. It would do much better on a mount with good humidity. It takes very high light in the winter and 50% shade in summer months. Good air movement throughout the year. Allow it to dry between waterings!!! Overwatering in the winter will mean sure death to the plant, especially if potted. Mine is in bloom now and had a flush of blooms in January. All that said, I have been growing mine in a pot for the last 3 years with a fast draing medium.

    ok...this may be a lame question, but I don't care! How does the average home grower (lights and/or windows) do "50% shade"...I see the % shade or % sun thing mentioned a lot. I can see where this might be easier to figure out if you were growing in a greenhouse....?

    Is is shady 50% of the TIME? or?

    Thanks!

    Default update of the phal n other in bloom

    the red phal is a rescue from a friend that almost kill it. All the flower from the pink and white phal is from one plant. It branches everywhere. The the purple den is a re-bloom from a few days ago.

    I would assume 50% shade to mean that it needs to be somewhere where it is not in the sun for half the time, so maybe my living room window where it gets lots of light, but only gets actual sun from the afternoon onwards. Rather than in a southerly facing window, with no obstructions, that gets the sun in some angle virtually all day.

    I am trying to compare it to the idea of an orchid sitting happily in a tree getting sun for part of the day until the sun swings round and the orchid is actually shaded by the tree.

    Is that a correct interpretation?

    I do love a branching phal, you feel like you are getting more flowers for your money.

    For some reason I didn't used to be a fan of white phals, I think it is because there were so many of the REALLY big and REALLY round hybrids which I thought looked a bit characterless. I did find one that changed my mind (much smaller, branching and very happy looking), although I don't know if it is Cool Breeze or Zuma Camreal. (The nursery had labelled it up incorrectly as Rendezvous, and those are the two whites that this nursery supply).

    I have been thinking of getting a white orchid with a red lip, so I am rather jealous of your branching phal. Any idea what hybrid it is?
