I got this stem prop plant from Hamilton Orchids (of Apopka) at Redlands. It’s flowering from an old spike while developing a new spike. I love the neon violet colour. This is why I collect novelty phals because of these bright glowing colours.

Hi Linus, I just switched my novelty phals to semi-water culture. This means it sits on 1 cm of water, in a low plastic tray. Roots grow into them rather than in the air.
The bottom 2 cm is clay pellets, then bark mix perlite/charcoal (2/3rd of clear plastic pot), lastly toppe last 2 cm with NZ moss.

I’m facing a repot on recently acquired Phal Orchid World. This plant, in spike, has aerial roots about a foot long. If I top dress the plant with a thick layer of rather loose spag I could curl them round the top of plant under the moss. Do you experts have another solution to aerial roots?

Almost forgot...your blooms are so beautiful!!! Colors just pop!
