My Phalaenopsis gigantea is blooming out in the greenhouse. This species comes from Borneo, Sabah, and Sarawak, where it grows in lowland swamps. It's now nearly extinct in the wild. The species is named for the plant size rather than flower size. My plant is about twelve years old and about two feet across...probably three feet if the leaves were stretched out. Flower size is about two and quarter inches. This plant bloomed in March for our spring show and I didn't expect it to bloom again until winter. It was in full bud a couple of weeks ago when I simply had to repot it due to deteriorated moss. I repotted it in fresh moss and it hasn't skipped a beat. I hang the plant in bright light at a 45 degree angle to allow the leaves to droop and the dependant flower stems to form. The plant is so heavy that I use two pots for the hook and melt many extra drainage holes in both pots.
