Lovely flowers! I'm very attached to my Phal. collection. They bloom just when I need the color most.

Gorgeous!! I am trying these warm going Phal again. So far. So good. This forum and these beautiful phal pictures are a bad influence on me. ;)

All orchids are a bad influence!!! My phals are kept at a minimum temp of 18c at the nightime and around 27c during the day. They are about 5 feet away from the MarsHydro light which is on for 12hours per day.....hope that will help a little.

Hi Ed. Thanks for the tips. I grow cool in the winter, and I am a chronic under waterer. Not the best match for Phal but great for other orchids. I am trying my Phals on seedling heating pads at night and getting good results. I am also using a sphagnum based mix over bark. I am not ready to claim victory yet, but things are looking up.

Growing a mixed collecting is challenging but that's part of the fun.
