    Accoriding to Flora's Orchids,
    P. gibbosa can be deciduous (less so in cultivation). Which grows in forests with cool dry winters. Same for P. parishii, P. wilsonii, and those are just the ones mentioned in the book. So there are a few. Your Phal is not in my book.

    I just found out that yours is from Java, I doubt they have cool dry winters, maybe cool wet ones. So I don't think yours will be loosing its leaves anytime, ever.

    Really interesting, Tindo - thanks! It sounds like a hardship case in nature. Hopefully cultivation keeps them happy enough they never need to shed their leaves. That's got to hurt their ability to gear up for a flower spike, if it's in reaction to adverse conditions. Flowers usually happen when everything is humming culturally.

    I'll check out the references. Great info!
