flowering question

At what size leaf will Phal bellina start to bloom? I have a few that I deflasked. They're still small, about 2-4" max leaf length.

Re: Phal. amboinensis

I just picked up a Phalaenopsis amboinensis "yellow" "sibling" from Joseph wu at the Philadelphia flower show today. It's a medium sized seedling.

Phal. venosa question

I pollinated my venosa on November 12th. Normally with my Cattleya, the bloom dries up, but with my venosa, the bloom turned green. Is it normal for a species Phal. to retain its flower as the pod develops?

Re: Care to speculate...?

Thanks I like that one. http://i.imgur.com/cP8pB8k.jpg above link is a photo of Yin's Gelb Pineda which - according to OrchidWiz - would be an 88% match to your cross. However we obviously don't know if one or other of the parents of the plant was a flava form, hence the offspring colour. OrchidWiz ...

Care to speculate...?

I pollinated my Phal venosa. I tried using Samera on one bloom and Penang Girl on the other. I was also given LD Bear Queen pollinia but I had only 2 blooms so I will save that for another project. So far, the Penang Girl failed. The bloom fell off rapidly but the Samera seems to be doing ok. Here i...

Phal flasking time question

I'm experienced with flasking Cattleya and am getting ready to make my first attempt with Phals. On average, how long do they stay in flask for, before I would receive them back from the lab, from sowing to deflasking? I send dry seed to my Lab, when I'm working with my Cattleya.

Phal venosa

My venosa started to open today for me. This is the first blooming under my care. It had bloomed once before for someone else. http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg257/exasperatus2002/Orchids/image_zps1zeaqn68.jpeg http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg257/exasperatus2002/Orchids/image_zpspfwfq8af.jp...

crown rot

I have a young Phal. gigantea, that the newest emerging leaf rotted. The Good leaves are about 6" long. What are the chances it will die off completely or send out a basal keiki?

Re: LD849 (LD Bellina Eagle X Lyndon Coral Grosbeak)

Nice bloom! Definitely worth breeding in my opinion or at least save the pollinia for when you have more options in bloom.

Re: Scattered orchid seeds

I almost had that issue with my first Cattleya hybrid. Caught it cracking the day after I watered it and sent it to be flasked right away.

Media for newly deflasked Phals.

What do you like to use? I'm used to cattleya and use coco husk chips. I've lost seedlings to rot when compoting in sphagnum. Orchiata has a fine bark grade for seedlings and there's my coco husk chips. What do you recommend for a hobbyist?
