CITES export Appendix II Species
Intro:This is the alba form of cornu-cervi. This plant has been located throughout most of the Thailand, Burma, Malaysia and Indonesia. This is a fairly easy species to grow which can bloom several times a year.Light:This plant prefers low to medium light with 800 - 1500 foot-candles being ideal. In-direct morning sunlight windows work best.Humidity:50% or higher is ideal.Water:It is best to use rainwater, distilled or reverse osmosis water. Municipal water can also be used. Water as the potting material reaches dryness but do not allow the mix to become completely dry between watering. Do not let Phalaenopsis stand in water.Fertilizer:We highly recommend using Green Jungle Orchid Food, especially formulated to work with rain, distilled, reverse osmosis water or water low in alkalinity. Fertilize with Green Jungle every time you water if plants are planted in bark. Be sure to flush the mix with clear water only once per month to prevent fertilizer salt build up. For plants in moss or mounted on slabs feed every third or 4th watering as the moss holds a lot of nutrients.
GrowMore 20-10-20 Ureafree for municipal or well water. Use at the rate of ½ teaspoon per gallon. If using GrowMore with rain, distilled, or reverse osmosis water, add back in 5 - 10% municipal or well water to supply the necessary calcium and magnesium. Fertilize every other watering in the summer and every third watering in the winter.Flowering:This plant produces an average of 2 to 3 flowers per spike. The flowers are solid yellow with a shiny and waxy in texture. When the flowers drop, it is not necessary to cut off the spikes because they can keep producing buds. Each spike has the ability to bloom several times until it weakens and dries up.Repotting:Phal. cornu-cervi prefers being potted into a plastic or clay pot using sphagnum moss. Remember to wet and ring out sphagnum moss before using it. When you plant with very wet sphagnum, you risk packing the plant too tight and drowning the roots. This plant can also be mounted on a cork slab as well.
