  • Phalaenopsis aphroditae? Help either way.

    OK. I got the plant from a friend. He was throwing it away. one healthy leaf, the other(which looked very poor) was removed. flowering stem ~24in. Two remaining flowers when I recieved the plant.
    I've since pollinated it, I think(bad idea?). The flower structures seem to have closed (I admit that I know almost nothing about how my plant should be pollinated, I took the advice from a bug or two).
    The flower's inside structures have since closed(is this good?)
    Right now I'm trying to find out what I should expect. And, if I'm killing the poor thing, let me know. Thanks.

    Hi MSUplants,
    Well, I've learned that bugs usually know what they're doing, so you're probably on the right track. :) Here's a site with some orchid growing faq's that might be helpful.

    Here's the American Orchid Society faq's page too.

    Hope this helps,
