    Default Phalaenopsis gigantea

    Native to Borneo first time blooms for me only 3 flowers I have no complain, the plant really under the deep shade, the reason why only 3 flowers because the roots system were badly damaged due to the cat activities.I have to tied it as the weight of the entire leaves more than 1 kilogram.
