    I love the way this phal looks so much that I have a couple of them arriving this week. They will be my first non-hybrid phals--any difference in growing conditions that you have noticed?

    Mehera,

    I live in the Philippines, where the plant is endemic. My hieroglyphicas are either mounted or in wire baskets, as in this photo. They get hosed at least once a day.

    Because I live in the concrete jungle that is Manila and I grow in a roofed driveway, my growing area has two fans turned on at least 12 hours a day.

    Because of my limitations not all my plants survive well, if at all. Hieroglyphicas are one of those that grow well.

    I have a few hybrids, and definitely, hybrids are easier to bloom compared to species.

    Please note that you have different conditions and more than likely you are growing your own phals in a pot, so what I do may not be best for your plants.

    If you look at the petals in the closeup shot, you can just make out the characters in ancient Egyptian. They read: "Instructions for Care..."

    ...oh yeah, I see it now: "wash cool, no bleach, hang dry." Well, that's easy! It's important to read the fine print.

    I knew it was there somewhere, but I think that petal was partially obscured.
