i've been looking through a lot of the phalaenopsis pictures and i've noticed the spikes are highly branched. can u induce that somehow or is it in the genetics such that they branch multiple times like Phal. schilleriana?

The postential to branch is genetic, from several species including schilleriana. The actual expression of the potential requires good culture. Only a healthy vigorous Phal will branch if its genetics allow branching. Makes sense?

yes it does help, thank you.

wat particular parentage or species have the genetics that favors branching (assuming they are grown well)?
