Unlike most of the Phalaenopsis we're familiar with, Phal. japonica like s cool, shady conditions and does best in a coarse, fast draining medium or mounted. Regular watering and fertilizing year-round, but avoid over-wet, soggy mix. Blooming season is mostly Spring-Summer.
Also available mounted under a separate listing.
