Phal NOID P002 - Plant photo by Richard LindbergI have to admit that I have mistreated my Phaleanopsis hybrids. One greenhouse is too wet and I get crown rot, the other is too bright and the flowers hide under the leaves on tiny stems.

I have decided that they deserve better. I am going to build a 3x6-foot section on the center bench in Sonoma especially for Phals. I have lots of shade cloth and PVC pipe and I have worked out a design for getting the light level down into the range they like, even on the brightest day. The design is evolving may even need to be redone. I'll post pictures.
