Encik, i still couldn't find any seedling of this plant around I love the wave and pinkist splash of the first plant flower. Do this plant need specific treatment or slow growing ? Are both plants came from the same flask? as i thought the second one might be a bastianii
Hi, zainal. I have had a couple of P mariae hybrids, including P Hannover Passion, whose flowers last only a few days -- maybe a week at the max. This was very surprising to me because most phal flowers with a thick texture last so much longer.
Since you are growing the mariae, can you (or anyone else) tell me how long the flowers last? And is it a sequential bloomer, or bloom all at once then rest for a while?
Thanks in advance. I've looked everywhere I can think of, but just can't find this information anywhere.
Phalaenopsis mariae is much rarer, and the plant is a wee bit smaller than that of Phalaenopsis bastiani. THe P. mariae that I have seen (and owned) have shorter spikes that bend down immediately (pendant).
I use Christenson's book for these problems. However, you can have a lot of phal species information from here: Phalaenopsis species by alphabetical order.

Thank you, zainal. That's very helpful. I'm obviously doing something wrong, but that's better than having a dud
