: Thanks ! I have had my Phal in a South window all winter...there should be plenty of light...we do not heat our home at night, so it drops to about 60 at night..perhaps, too cold? I do have a flourescent fixture in the tube is a 'grow light'..
: my watering solution is Better-Gro Orchid Plus 20-14-13....a garden center in Lawrence (Kansas) recommended it to me...they have numerous orchids...However, I did print out some info which recommended 30-10-10 and one source recommended Tiger Tree..which is 16-19-19 for Winter, Spring 26-9-9, Summer 25-16-8, Autum you have any recommendations on nutrients?
: thanks K

I don't even know what the numbers are on the fertilizer I purchased, it was just orchid food. I have 3 of my phals in the North bathroom window. The morning showers give them plenty of steam plus I mist them in the evening. I also leave my bathroom light on all day when I am at work. They are soooo happy in there. Their blooms just died in late October and they are about to bloom again. Of course I keep thier trays full of marbles and water. I keep my thermostat set on 60 day and night. They are happy.
