Substrate, growing media and repotting:

 Pale Colored Phalaenopsis grows best mounted on a tree trunk, cork slab or nestled in a slatted basket or pot. Containers should be filled with is a bark with a grain size of 12-16 mm with the addition of humectants, or sphagnum moss with the addition of pearlite or charcoal to improve drainage. The addition of charcoal seems to improve the condition of the plant. It may also be advantageous to add a small amount of limestone, but under the condition of watering with warm water (21 ° C).
 Do not repot it while it is in bloom, repotting is best done just after flowering, when the growth of new roots begins.


 From spring to fall, water frequently but only when the plant and bark are dry to the touch. Hot water at 21 ° C is recommended for watering. The precipitation scheme is wet / dry, with the period of winter being a relatively dry period.

 In the period of active growth, it is recommended to apply once a week or once every two weeks 1/4-1/2 of the recommended dose of fertilizer for orchids.

Rest period:

 In winter, the average day temperature is 31-32 ° C, the night 23 ° C, which gives a daily difference of 8-9 ° C. The amount of water should be limited to light watering only every 2-3 weeks and occasional fogging between watering. Do not allow the plant to dry completely, because during this period flowering occurs. It is necessary to eliminate fertilization and increase the amount of light.
