    Hi,
    I never cut the spikes on mine, it's planted in a basket & hanging looks lovely when in flower and interesting when not which is not to often. It appears to be quite a strong little species and my favourite so I've just bought another. I don't give it any specific treatment and it's grown indoors since I bought it 5 years ago

    Beautiful shape to those blooms, Zain! This isn't the phal that sometimes blooms red, is it?

    great flower, do you have the flower in zoom condition you can use macro to take the picture. the pattern unique but the colour not strong enough.

    But anyway great one
