Phalaenopsis stobartiana 4

Phalaenopsis stobartiana

This Chinese flower is probably the rarest Phal I own and I am so happy it finally bloomed.  It is a miniature with few leaves, long root system and no noticeable scent.

The section Aphyllae can be difficult to tell apart,  one of the ways to do so is to review the rear of the lip. Stobartiana does not have a spur or nipple as Fig2 and Fig 3 show.  Others in this section do, for reference I add Fig 4 that shows a hainanensis with a spur.

Fig2 stobartiana with NO nipple/spur

Fig3 stobartiana with NO nipple/spur

Fig 4 hainanensis with nipple/spur

    Is there any trick to make it bloom?
    I’ve got it for two years now and … nothing.
    There was a moment when it had no leaves, now we’ve got two leaves, good root system and the end of this summer.
    I think, I can hope only for next season.
