PHAL VIOLACEA CARE INFO:

Potting mix: Coarse/fine bark with some sphagnum moss added to slow drying or mounted with moss. Repot in Spring once every other year as the bark begins to break down. Don't move up in pot size until fully root bound. 

Light: Bright indirect-medium light. Not picky. Bright North/East facing. Shaded South/West facing is ok with good watering and humidity. 

Water: Water when media is dry. Prefers wet/dry cycle similar to most Phals. Decrease in winter, this variety likes to have a slightly drier rest period. 

Temp: Intermediate-warm (55F min night, 80F max day). They often spike in fall or winter with a drier, cooler rest period.

Humidity: 40-80%, not picky with adequate watering. Top dress with moss to help maintain humidity near the base of the plant. 

Fertilizing: 1/4-1/2 strength urea-free fertilizer, every other watering as new roots and leaves emerge. Flush the pot with water once monthly to remove mineral build up. Decrease or stop in Winter.
