    That is cool. Does the lip hinge and close to ensure pollination? Or does it just move to attract pollinators?

    Cheers,

    Nice Ron! I recently bought a parishii x lobbii in spike. Hopefully I won't kill it. Mine is mounted. Looks like yours is potted. How moist do you keep yours? The leaves are so much thinner than most phals, I wonder if keeping mine moister would be wiser.

    I have a mounted one as well. I water it 2X per week but it get's good humidity. Moast of the roots are outside of the pot so they dry quickly.
