    Default Phalaenopsis (Doritis) Pulcherrima

    This is a cross between two of the pulcherrima family plants, champorensis alba & Brightons, Brightons is a now closed nursery.

    I think it shows some promise & provided I don't kill it now I've flowered it I'll be very happy.

    Hey Roy, don't how I missed this post. I got one of these a couple of weeks ago and was wondering how you are treating it. Mine was planted in rotting sphag. and not in very good shape. There are large brownish areas on the leaves. The roots are pretty good but not showing any new growth. The flower spike had just finished. I took it out of that pot and put it bare root in a clay pot. Any help would be appreciated.

    I'm no expert Chris but this & the other ( I think I posted ) grow in 12mm bark in a clear pot, inside a normal black pot. No real reason other than it works. Many Phal' growers use the clear pots & spag moss but have much more suitable temps than me. If you have ideal, all year round conditions they'll grow as a mount on loose in a pot. I prefer the bark. Temps & light the same for this as everything else. 10c - 40c. 70% shade in summer, 15% in winter. Its about that as I use the Opal polycarb on the roof & walls.

    Thanks Roy! Hope it makes it.
