Not bad for a first flowering.
One layer of 50% white shadecloth and a 6mm solar-ice film is on but the heat is still not low enough. Looks like I need more exhaust fans. Electrician comes on Tuesday. Getting really excited over here!
Phalaenopsis mariae Often plants labeled mariae turn out to be bastianii or the hybrid Lovely Marie (bastianii x mariae) but this one is the real deal. Flowers are very similar looking to bastianii but the inflorescence growth is less erected than that of bastianii.
Podangis dactyloceras A species from Africa, I grow it potted but it can be mounted. The flowers are transparent almost crystalline and the green center really pops.
We’ve got heat. I know the summer is coming but nights are still too cool for my Phals. Shadecloth is hopefully going on today.
