    I need to find a new one. Mine is exceptionally slow. Do you have a source for yours? Love the darker saturation on it.

    Thanks!

    I've had this plant for 8 years, so that batch has long since been sold out, but in Europe the species is available.

    Hopefully I can persuade someone to bring a nice one back from the Taiwan show this year.

    I'm right with you on that Sam. Like to know what the trick is. Actually I find all the small Phal. species hard to grow. Thanks for sharing this beautiful plant.

    I grow most of my potted orchids quite dry, they sit around in a dry pot at least 1 week before I water them. Maybe that helps? After all Phalaenopsis tend to rot easily (don't know if that's what happened with the javanicas).
