    The canes have nodes on the canes and that is where a growth comes from. they don't put up one but enough do. I grow mine in potting mix not bark.

    hey randy, so yours died too eh? Just the same manner mine did - due to rot.

    Altho I have a hybrid phaicalanthe kryptonite "ursula" and a phais flavus which appears to be doing well this time around. Strange for me when I try the tankervillae, twice it died on me. Hmmmm .....

    Next time around, I hope my luck runs better as I might be acquiring a phais tankervillae "rabin's raven" am/aos sometime soon.

    I prefer spgnum moss - keeps them wet, but not too wet.
    As to propagation from flower spikes, yes it works. You need a big tray, to lay them flat on the moss - or if you haven't got moss, I find a few layers of newspaper works just as well - then have a tray with drainage holes, so that you can soak the paper, buit surplus water drains away. I have flowered them in the 2nd year after potting up from this technique. ( Works well with flowered, leafless nobile type dendrobium canes too and also Thunia stems, in this case cut up into 6 inch lengths - you should get a keiki or two on most of the lengths if a decent thickness.)

    I ordered a Phaius Microburst recently. What kind of light do you give yours?

    Default Phaius growing conditions

    Remember that Phaius are terrestrials - on th ground - so that there is usually some natural shade. I have seen thm growing on the banks of ditches, and at the sides of the road where other vegetation provides some shade; I have never seen them in deep forest where it gets really dark on the ground. So I grow mine on the bench , on the darker side of the house, or if on the brighter side, where there are other taller pants between them and the glass behind them, and there is a dense bank of overhead plants - Vandas in 8 inch and 10inch pots above them. So my guess would be light of the order of 1 K Lux up to say 6 or maybe even 8k lux at different times.
    BTW I have a couple of plants of P.tankervilliae in bud, one was just opening the first few flowers when I left home last Friday- I'll post some pics when I return early February.
    In have never seen any Phaius hybrids on offer here in UK or Europe. Shal be interested to see what your flowers look like in due course.

    Thanks for the info! What climate zone are you? I think mine needs to stay inside because I border zone 4-5 and am assuming that the winter temps that dip to -10 at times may be too cold... (even if I had a greenhouse...) Ill try in a brighter indoor location, indirect, and maybe adding grow lights as needed to supplement. Will keep you posted on blooms!
