    I love this species. Interesting, I've been growing mine warm with year round water. I only have one so I'll keep doing that. If I get another, I can try the rest.

    Awesome, Alexey! Such a great species. Marni, how warm are you growing yours? Mine suffered mightily above 95 F/35 C. Then I froze it last winter...

    Marni, I have no first hand experience yet. What you can see on these photos is a first time blooming plant, which I got as a seedling in early spring. Will see how it go through the winter rest. In general, non of my Phalaenopsis, even lowii, receive more than fairly-dry-winter-rest.

    Sorry to hear it. Great species and if your growing conditions are more or less suitable for it, perhaps another plant can be more successful. Sometimes clonal characteristics can make a big difference between plants adaptability.

    I have it a 65 (well, sometimes 62) minimum nights. Days are 80 to 85.
