    Default Phalaenopsis Bellina

    This is my Phal Bellina, blooming for the first time. Perhaps during this rainy season in Malaysia promoted it to spike and bloom. It is mounted to a small piece of wood. The roots grew and grew and now it has attached itself to the wooden fence.

    Sorry, the picture didn't turn out. Hope this works now. Btw, this first bloomer has got a very nice fragrance... :-)

    Beautiful! Do you have any sphagnum around the roots, or is it just mounted bare to the wood?

    Thanks Yug! When mounting initially, I placed just a little sphagnum to help the orchid have better grip on the wood and for hydration. Now, her roots had covered the whole piece of wood and even have taken root on my wooden fence. The sphagnum can't be seen anymore. Since she's doing well at the moment, I just let her be. I water this Bellina once daily (when there's no rain), and fertilize weekly with liquid fert. Happy growing!
