Phalaenopsis gigantea seedling finishes growing leaf

Phalaenopsis gigantea seedling

     My phal gigantea seems to have adjusted nicely in the month that I've had it under my care.  It has completed growing a new leaf (I can tell it's done growing because of the little ridges that showed up at the leaf's base in the crown).  The newest leaf is 2" long, which is about the same length as the two older leaves.  The orchid also grew two new roots.  One of them is partially visible in the photo (just under the lowest leaf), while the other new root is buried in the media.

     All in all, this orchid seems to be doing quite well.

  1. Looking good! Mine just sits there doing nothing. I would like it to grow some roots, but it wouldn't listen to me.
