    Interesting foliage if it is stuartiana. When I first looked, I thought the foliage looked more like my Phal. schilleriana. It is certainly not possible to tell without seeing flowers and foliage can be variable, but I would agree most stuartianas have more mottling. As an interesting comparison, here are my stuartiana and schilleriana-stuartiana is the one on the top of the photo. Both are grown with the same amount of light. It will be interesting to see what happens when your plant blooms. It does look fairly close to blooming size.

    Schilleriana are cool growers and they love nighttime drops in temperatures in order for it to bloom.

    Roy I'm not sure about the exact temperature values but here in the Philippines, Schilleriana does not (or even never) flower in lowland Manila. It flowers in the highlands up in the north like in Baguio. Schillerianas grown here in Manila just keep growing and growing and if ever spikes form they produce only keikis and no flowers.

    Although recently because Baguio climate has become a bit warmer now because of the effects of global warming and the denudation of the pine forests the number of flowers produced by schillerianas up there have somewhat lessened. In some areas where the temperature is still unchanged like up higher in Benguet province and the mountainous areas of Nueva Vizcaya/Quezon the plants still flowers profusely.

    Hi Jojo, I'm waiting for my sample schillerianas I bought in spike if they will continue on with flowers or a keiki. It came from the area of Silang, Cavite w/c is very near Tagaytay. I'm in General Trias, Cavite and I have a night time temp of 21C to 24C this month. You can usually tell if it will become a keiki if the end of spike starts to become fat and triangular.

    Anyway, I have a big Schilleriana plant though (recently acquired) coming from Tagaytay (around 19C-20C at night) with 115 buds.

    Looks like a healthy plant and is probably blooming size. I wonder if it is schilleriana instead of stuartiana as Susan suggested? Seems possible.

    Cheers,

    Hi Byron,

    How was the bloom on your Phal.? I realize this thread is a 2010. But, hope this helps...this is the Phal. Stuartiana, and yes the leaves should be mottled. Here are two photos of the bloom.
