Phalaenopsis bellina coerulea 3" FS sibling cross
Phalaenopsis bellina coerulea
species - Borneo
These are sibling crosses of the lovely coerulea ("blue") form of the species. The very fragrant 2" flowers are produced in Summer-Fall on short stems both above and sometimes below the foliage. They are warm growers (nights 65 degrees and up) that need shade and moisture at their roots at all times. Do avoid soggy roots, and still, dry/hot air. Water and fertilize year-round.
Tip: don't cut stems while they remain green - the plant can bloom again from a green, once flowered stem, especially when it is mature.
Handle with care.
