Phaleanopsis Taisuco Swan x Taisuco Mercy

This is your basic white Phal. I got it as an extreme rescue that lost all its leaves. It was only roots when I mounted it.

Nice Phal hybrids are quite reasonably priced and I would always advise people to just get a new orchid rather than invest the time in Phal rescues. However, I wanted to see if this could be brought back to blooming.

It now has four leaves. The leaves are tiny and not well shaped. They look like leaves on Phals that are getting too much light. I am trying to decide whether to try to find an even shadier spot in the greenhouse or to bring it inside the house. In the house I can reduce the watering to get rid of the alge and encourage root growth.
