    The Schilleriana loves the temperature ranging from 16C- 10C. When it was coldest in Baguio from December to February, the spike started December and blossomed in end Jan and stayed on till early March. I self-pollinated my three Phal. species as well as crossed pollinated them last March. And the three species now have swollen seed pods. Will see what happens.

    Some noticeable foliage differences between a Stuartiana and the Schilleriana is that the Stuartiana leaves are wider and lighter colored than the Schilleriana. Meanwhile, the foliage of the Schilleriana and Philippinensis are almost the same, they are long and narrow.

    I have observed and seen that the Stuartiana & Philippinensis can have some Keikis but not the Schilleriana and as I have never seen this on the later species.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    SORRY for the late reply but the unknow phal died like most of my orchids did. I was gone for about 6-8 weeks and the person who was supposed to care for my plants forgot about them. when i finally came home, about 70% of them were dead =[

    Sorry to hear that Byron. If the roots are still green, you may have a chance of reviving the plant. What I do is soak the roots in a container just above the "dead" crown for 3-4 days and then remove water. After letting it dry for a day, I again put water in the container and soak again for 3-4 days. Repeat procedure until a small leaf rises from the crown and new roots are evident in the old roots. After the new leaf/leaves come out, it can be potted or planted in fern chips. I have done this countless times and the success is unbelievably high for the endemic Philippine species.

    I hope you still have them.

    I will try to post a photo tomorrow so you can see baby foliage.
