Phalaenopsis - Dtps Sogo Golden 'A07867'

Probably the most common and popular orchid in temperate regions, phalaenopsis orchids aren't kept as much as hard-cane dendrobiums, vandas, cattleyas and epidendrums in the Tropics.

I don't have much experience with phals. I've tended to stay away from them in favour of hard-cane dendrobiums.


This little doritaenopsis is a recent impulse purchase. The foliage was damaged but it had a keiki and two developing spikes. 


One spike produced three flowers and the other only two. Not very floriferous but the medium-small yellow flowers look nice on the compact plant.


Keep phals out of direct sunlight and fertilize lightly but regularly. The potting media must be free draining but never allow it to completely dry out.

Lovely compact orchid. A soft beautiful yellow. I grow mainly Dendrobiums on trees and a few others in hanging pots,all of them easy to keep and not much fuss.

These flowers look so lovely.
I think its worth it to get this miniature phal.
They look compact - I think it will constantly bloom to you.
