Probably Phal. schilleriana would be one of the easiest, although I think its a bit boring If your not hung up on species there are thousands of easy to grow Phal hybrids out there some are stunning and can be picked up half dead at most of the chain hardware stores for cheap. I'd start out with a cheapie clearance hybrid if you look around you can find the ones that just finished blooming so they move them to the clearance racks where they slowly start to die.
Haraella retrocalla. This bloom is barely half an inch tall!
It has a face...... ever feel like you're being watched in your greenhouse?
Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
Does anyone know what this is? It's one of my many shopping center saves with no ID? Even if not I just wanted to show how pretty it is Such a gentle purple.
Zygopetalum, maybe? Either way you are lucky..we only have 20$ NOID phals over here.
Show us the whole plant, please.
If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.
- Phal. stuartiana is generally fairly easy.
- P. lobbii and P. parishii are quite tolerant if grown in terrarium type conditions. (These latter two are both mini's and can be deciduous at times.)
- Phal equestris grows like a weed for most folks I know. Tends to keiki like crazy. While not a true mini, it is a small/dwarf grower.
KN, I agree with Paul, it is some type of a zygo hybrid.
Paul, have you taken a sniff of your Haraella?
