This is a discussion on Phal. (Hawaiian Clouds 'Hawaii' x Yukimai 'Tinny') within the Phalaenopsis, Oncidium, & Intergenerics IN BLOOM forums, part of the Orchid Photography category; This one has branched out and rebloomed. All these are on branches from two spikes. ...
phal on steroids ! What is your fertilizer ?
Are all your orchids outside, and how do you handle too much rain...I notice the phal is tipped and water shouldn't stand in the crown....
Oh very lovely
Yeah, it's tipped so the water can run out of the crown.
All the non-Pleuro/Masdies are outside for the summer. Some of them suffer a bit, including the Phals. It gets too hot for them, and they suffer leaf damage from it sometimes. This one had to go outside, though, as I couldn't get it close enough to a window to get enough light, and I certainly wasn't going to keep the metal halide bulb going all summer.
It gets fertilized about once a month, with a relatively balanced fert. Cheap stuff, nothing special. It needs new sphag in there.
Very nice growing Sue. Thanks for sharing.
BRAVO! Man some of the phals can really put on a show! Well done, Sue. Thanks!
Wow! There is just something so elegant about white phals. No wonder I have five of them............None of mine have ever looked like yours, though. I think I'll show them your pic.........
