    Default Phal. Harford's Gem 'Mary' AM/AOS

    I'm a bit confused, I've bought this Phal as Princess Kaiulani and now

    Looks very nice. Would like one of those. Is it growing in rocks and water?

    Yes, it's Semi-Hydroponic.
    I have all my plants in S/H and it seems they like it.

    Phalaenopsis + Hydroton + Pretty clear glass bowl + water + fertilizer + light + algae = SUCCESS!

    It definitely looks more like the Harford's Gem in the images I searched...
    In any case you have a REAL GEM there----I love it!

    It's common I think...someone moves them around to be funny or something because I have one like that. It said it was a Brother Girl Brother and it turned out to be a Brother Sierra Gold....sometimes a web search for pics can tell you whether the tag is correct or not.
