Comments: Medium-sized plant.
Donor's culture notes: Temperature range I (60-83°F). Steve Tatoul volunteered this cultural information to me about fasciata: "I was having trouble growing a beautiful Phalaenopsis fasciata 'Orinda' AM/AOS. On my last visit to California I stopped in to see Dr. Maynard Michaels of Orchids Orinda. He was the person that introduced this cultivar to us all. I asked him how he grew it and he stated that the fasciata of course likes a cooler climate than my Florida greenhouse but more importantly that the fasciata likes to completely dry out between waterings. I moved the fasciata from the high humidity greenhouse to my porch and I began to allow the plant to completely dry out between waterings then drench it. The plant sat idle for one year and then kicked back into growth and is now growing quite nicely. The midsummer heat still causes some damage when temps get into the 90's but not too bad really. The plant has doubled in size now this year and is producing a keiki. Thank you Maynard and I hope this helps someone else turn a surviving fasciata into a thriving fasciata."
Unique ID: MC3365
(this will not change even if any part of the name should change)
