    I have started collecting phal species quite recently, and am usng the Kew monograph on the genus by Christenson as my guide. He says that the whole sub-species parishianae , which includes lobbii and parishii as two distinct species - although obviously very close, and often confused , are exceptions to the general rule, in needing cooler conditions in the winter . Down to 11-13 deg. C.
    My large greenhouse runs at about 12-13 s winter night temperature, but I have a couplle of enclosures inside this, with additional heat and I grow most phal spcis in one of them, but have both parishii and lobbii outside, in the 12-13 section.
    I should be interested to know how you grow your obviously very healthy specimen !

    The cultivation in the greenhouse, Phalaenopsis conditions, but with a lot more light, watering with reverse osmosis, 70% and 30% water, 110 ppm and feeding force 1, every 15 days, every two months with 1 CA (NO3) 2, minimum temperature 14 ° at night and 17 ° during the day.
