    Generally speaking, species tend to be more "fussy" than hybrids. So if you have never grown a phal before, I would suggest getting a hybrid to "cut your orchid teeth on". Species-wise:
    • 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?

    I did! Most unusual (but pleasant) scent!

    Love that Dendrobium subuliferum, Jon! Looks like the flower has pretty heavy substance. And that Lepanthes caprimulgus is way too cool! Never heard nor seen that species before. Too bad it appears to be a cool grower. Odds are it would die in my care.
    Lepanthes caprimulgus can be grown on the warm side of intermediate and it does fine. I've grown one in Louisiana with 80s for summer/fall highs and 60s for winter/early spring lows. A friend of mine grew and bloomed it wonderfully at a constant 73 in a terrarium, mounted and misted daily.

    Hmm, then mayhaps I will give it a go someday should I find an inexpensive one with which to experiment.

    This one gave a rather disappointing performance for me this go around:





    It aborted 1/2 to 2/3 of its blooms. Not quite sure why. It is the only Noid in my collection as well as being one of my oldest plants (20+ yrs).

    Love the (what I'm assuming is a) dendrobium phalaenopsis!
    Anyway, my Oncidium Twinkle 'Red' finally dropped all of its blooms, and left me with this..and for an Oncidium, that normally have ugly foliage in general (blotchy/accordion/yellow leaves), I was impressed by this.

    This is not my growing space, btw..Just though I should take some shots and what better place then where the sun is setting?

    I know its a repeat but it finally cooperated and gave me a flower in a place I could get a good photo of. Lets not talk about the 1/2 a dozen flowers off in the corner behind the driftwood pressed against the glass.
