    I have species Phals & some hybrids & i really like them but a Phal noid from HD is cheap & not a great lose if it dies.
    Just don,t try it out on something you really like.
    Not a Phal hater @ all.

    Steve, just wanted to say thanks for the fert you sent! Much appreciated, and I didn't get to thank you publicly. I'm going to try it on several plants by spooning around the medium, see if there's a noticeable change over the next few months.

    Thanks again!

    Well the FB&B didn,t to Phragenstein any harm , 1 of the new growths as spiked
    It,s only half the size of the big daddy growth (it,s about 24") , the 2 side branches of the big spike have stopped flowering so now i can get the extra flowers from the new spike

    Oh yes the yellowy/green leaves are my Paph roth.
    The milky residue is Dithane(honestly !).

    Getting a very good plant to start with has got to be the primary reason.
    I think a lot of luck as well.The only place i could put Phragenstein in the growroom was in a place where it got a lot of light(2,500fc/3,500fc) which is higher than a lot of the info i gathered reccomended.Being in s/h & hitting on the right fert seems to have been inspired but mainly down to giving it a go & see what happens.
    Basically tons of light(12 to 13 hours a day every day) , copious amounts of water(plant gets through about 1 pint a day) , a fert regime that suits the conditions i grow in.
    Who knows when i eventually get my g/h i may be able to get the other 3 largish new growths to spike
