February Show and Tell exhibit


Phalaenopsis cf. Timothy Christopher Care


This orchid set spikes when under cool temps (or a temperature drop), but it also flowered freely throughout the year without requiring the temperature change. It blooms both in summer and in winter.


The flowers are not fragrant; however, they last for an incredible 4 months (16 weeks)!


The leaves have a flaw where they have a groove that’s off center; it has been present on the two last leaves. I’m considering cutting the top of the growth off in an effort to initiate a new basal growth that is not flawed but I’ll wait until it’s larger before I do that




Phal. Timothy Christopher has been an amazing parent in multitudes of multifloral miniature hybrids and today is still one of the most sought-after of all multifloral Phalaenopsis!  Although it tends to produce its flower spike from the center of the apical meristem, it will often continue to produce a new leaf or a basal keiki. A very compact and easy grower, its floral abundance is reminiscent of a soft fluffy white cloud. Ideal for under lights, windowsill or small space growing, it is Highly Recommended !
