    Question Dtps Kenneth Schubert?

    Hello!
    Well, the label said Kenneth Schubert but the spike grows straight and the flower looks like this, makes me wonder if it is not a pulcherrima instead

    Not a phal/dtnps expert, but can you show the rest of the plant? It might help to identify if members can see the leaves.

    Thanks Maura, I shall do just that. But I'll try to get a pic tomorrow, maybe I get lucky with some natural light, I just noticed that I didn't take pics of this one until it bloomed. It was with the pulcherrimas when I got it, but those where quite different and I really sat and compared to make sure I don't have surprises. So far, all I can say is that it is a sloooooow grower

    Cheers!

    Thank you!
    I didn't manage to get a good pic today, there was virtually no decent natural light worth mentioning. I suppose that the poor thing is a tad confused due to youth, it has no signs of previous blooming.
    Cheers!

    Mmmm.... Does Kenneth Schubert show variations with green/yellow at the tips of the petal, or a sharper narrower set on the bottom two? I have no idea - just ruminating.

    Well, the pic is taken the day the bloom has finished opening, could be youth? I'll see how it goes until Wednesday when I'll be free and I'll take a new pic Maura. That is what confused me a bit as well and why I asked

    Btw Maura (highjacking my own thread I am)... I have a small lowii as well, any tips? It came with two root stumps, severe general root damage and cellular collapse on the leaves. The root are growing as far as I know, it has been bathed in biothrive grow, anything else I could do?

    Thank you again

    As a matter of fact, Phillip has a lowii in bloom right now, and it has looked abominable since he first got it. If I can ever figure out how to post photos I took with a tablet, I'll post it.

    That looks like a Kenneth Schubert to me. I've been wanting one of these for a while, so I've been staring at a lot of pictures of them! LOL Anyway, it looks just like the ones I've seen.

    I also happen to have recently purchased a pulcherrima coerulea, so I have a picture of what one would look like. Here's a pic of a straight pulcherrima coerulea:

    You can see quite a few notable differences between this and the one you have. I would say the Kenneth Schubert name is correct, although I don't think this is actually called a Dtps anymore, since Doritis is no longer a species of its own and has now been lumped in with Phalaenopsis. I believe it would now just be called Phalaenopsis Kenneth Schubert (Someone correct me if I'm wrong on that, though. Names confuse the bleepers out of me)

    I actually have a lowii as well. It's potted in a clay pot with very chunky bark and some LECA pellets...I've heard these grow best when mounted, so I've tried to mimic the "mounted" feel with a pot. Anyway, it's quite happy. I have it with my other species phals. If yours is showing root growth, that's fantastic. You're on the right track. The only other thing I would recommend is putting it in a terrarium to give it maximum humidity. I've got a little terrarium I playfully refer to as "sickbay," where I put any plant that arrives looking dreadful. I currently have several plants in there that arrived with cold damage. The terrarium REALLY helps the species phals, I find. They recover a whole lot faster in the terrarium than if they were just sitting on the shelf.

    I hope your lowii recovers! And congrats on your new orchid! It's just darling! What cute little blooms!
