I do not grow many Phalaenopsis, but I must admit that I really am smitten by this little hybrid. It looks like a little ray of sunshine in my window, something we are in rather short supply of this time of year. Mini Mark is the result of a very successful cross between Phalaenopsis Micro Nova (maculata x parishii) and philippinense. My particular clone is named Holm and it comes from Karge in Germany. I grow it in a medium bark mix on the windowsill under medium/low additional lighting. No special requirements really. It is easy to grow and does not take up a lot of space. It has a leaf span of about 26 cm and keeps the flowers close to the leaves on short inflorescences.
