Phalaenopsis schilleriana – 365 days of orchids – day 1875
Phalaenopsis schilleriana is one of our favourite Phalaenopsis species with really attractive mottled leaves and long thin pendulous flower stems of large pink flowers. The spikes become branched when plants are larger.
Phalaenopsis schilleriana comes from hot lowland forests in the Philippines and so enjoys high temperatures and shaded conditions. we grow the species in what used to be our greenhouse classroom with minimum 17C although it would like a little warmer.
