    Just breathtaking! I love those guys, just can't seem to grow/bloom them. Do you keep yours with the rest of your phals?

    Hi , I keep them with the other Phals. but in the warmest area of the green house , same care .
    They are in Spag. and don't like to stay in the pot , kinda mount themselves on top of the Spag. only thing I do is to be sure after watering I lay them over on thier side so the leaves are hanging .. beats T paper dabbing in the crown . They tend to get wavy leaves off and on , I thought it was a humidity thing in the house , but still do it off and on in the greenhouse .
    Glad you like it . Gin

    Lovely bloom, Gin!

    I think the wavy leaves are a species thing. My Penang Girl (violacea x venosa) does the same thing.
