    i always love your pics. Amazing!!!! (Don't take this wrong because I mean it with the upmost respect) but I wish I could live in a "natural" environment for orchids. Florida is tropical but can kill even "full sun" plants let alone orchids (even if you have $$$$$). The frost last year and then heat wave this year is killing me. I have lost 3 Phals in two months . Plz keep up with the inspiring pics some of us struggling are holding on to hope .

    I would also like to know how you get this to bloom, I have had a paraphalaenopsis labukensis since 2008 that has grown but never bloomed, I would like to see the flowers on this one at some point and time. It's in a low light area in my shed which is what I was told it needs, is this correct?

    Thanks Connie for this species you can use charcoal as a medium or if you have drift wood also ok at the base just covered thin layer of moss to maintain humidity. In response to high temperature for established plants they begin to through away the spike, they do love water, here I'm spraying twice a day.

    Hi Jack here in my garden the plants always got more than 50% lights for your info most of the orchids refused to bloom when the lights level reduce in the intensity except some Paphs, I wish you should change the position. In the wild of course the plants relatively under the shade but during the dry season ( Jan till May) they got excessive sunlight this will trigger spike formation.
