    I had a pha from keiki too.

    I removed the keiki when the spike became dry.

    Then, the keiki was put in a glass jar to maintain higher humidity level.

    I mounted it on a piece of cork, as it was too hard for me to guess when i should water it otherwise.

    it looked happy now but grew very slow (maybe too cold here?).

    My pha from keiki. It grew really slow. It was its third year.

    What are the black splotches on the leaf in the first photo? A couple of my phals have this and are now in quarantine. Both of them are sending up a huge flower spike but the blotches are disturbing.

    I once had a Phalaenopsis much like this one, mind blowing how a flower so beautiful that seems so unobtainable in western culture as a "houseplant" yet time and time again it proves its substance well over style and comes back and back always a bit more resilient it truly is inspiring
