Plant of the Month - January 5


Congratulations to Henry Glowka for his Phalaenopsis Baldan’s Kaleidoscope ’Golden Treasure’ AM-AOS! He explained to us how he got the inflorescences to arch up and over without using ties. When he sees the inflorescence emerging from between the leaves he starts tipping and turning the plant in such a way that the inflorescence will curve the way he wants it to as it tries to bend towards the light. He stops as soon as the buds start to differentiate to make sure they will all face the same way. It sure worked, even if it is labour intensive! His growing area is a north facing window in an apartment building, where he augments the light with overhead lights. With this exposure he never has to worry about the sun cooking or burning his plants.
