This is a conversation I'm really interested in too because I have a phal sitting in a window with indirect sunlight. I'm really good with watering it, and it has really healthy roots with a new leaf growing out. You said you let your phal cool down to 60. I live in Boston, MA the temps have been in that range and some nights it drops into the 40's. My other concern if I was told to let it sit outside are the pests. Where do you keep your phals where they can get down to 60's?

Do you let them sit out over night?
Further to my post of 14th October, new eye on rhyzome forming, but still no roots. Is this normal???
Can anybody help?
Patience my dear...lol!!
It takes time for good things to happen sometime. If it's showing signs of growth, that's a good thing. Perhaps more humidity and light, with less watering may help. My one damaged orchid that sprung to life has only one new root that is growing all over the place, and two stunted shoots. It's alive, I'm just not sure what it wants to do.
I've honestly just been watching mine grow. I water them when the medium drys, then just wait and repeat the process. My dendrobium has two keikis growing, and I'm just waiting for them to be strong enough to seperate from the mother cane. Waiting is the name of the game.
It is my opinion that Phals. are little pigs. I feed mine more than any other orchid - and repot them every 6 months because I pot mine in straight sphagnum moss. They grow with frenzy and bloom consistently. They do like to be fed.
Yeah, I just keep mine in bark, because I can water them more frequently, and I don't have to worry about over watering.
