    Default More Education - Phaius Dan Rosenberg

    I have had this Phaius Dan Rosenberg for about a year. This past summer it enjoyed lots of great sunlight, food and water because that's what I read it needed. In the fall, I brought it into the GH and because of its size (it's in a 10" pot) I had to put under one of the benches. Thinking it might be a bit too cool for it and not enough light, I brought it into the home. So far no flower spikes! So my query is: When do they flower and/or did I leave something out during the year that induces them to flower? I know that it flowers because I purchased it for pennies on the dollar after the spikes had seen better days.

    I have a couple ground orchids.....mine bloom from spring to fall, when full grown and in a good mood. lol My understanding is that yours is a spring bloomer as well, April you should have spikes.

    I wish i would have had my camera....a local nursery had one a couple months ago in this huge plastic container. It had a dozen spikes and the flowers were huge yellow vanda looking flowers. It was amazing!.....ps.....anytime, glad to help, hope it blooms nice for you.

    I have a Phaius Tankervillae that has just started to spike. So there's hope for yours. It sounds like you did it all right so there shouldn't be a problem.

    Hi

    My name is Cindy and I am new to this group. I love orchids and have been keeping different kinds for many years. I recently brought home a wonderful Phaius Dan Rosenberg - Tropical Ice. About week later I was greeted with 30 beautiful orchids that made my heart flutter like butterflies. The flowers have stayed for almost 2 weeks now but one of the plants 6 long leaves is now turning yellow.

    I'd like to know how to care for it and keep it healthy. It stays in my living room at a constant 55% humidity kept up by a couple of fish tanks and a de-humidifier.

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Cindy

    Can you tell more on your fertiliser regime? As far as I know, phaius require a lot of organic fertiliser to grow and flower best. I notice your plant has a lot of growths, but few of them are near flowering size. Most are too young to spike.

    I think you are confusing the posts

    , the earlier one with pictures is an old one from 2008, whereas the question is for the same kind of plant.

    Welcome to OT Cindy ! Phaius are deciduous,is they will loose old leaves on a pseudobulb. If possible please post pictures of your plant in a separate thread, so that we can have a look and guide you better.
