We keep our Phalaenopsis orchids over 55 degrees and high's below the mid 90‘s. We have had great success in my small greenhouse getting these plants to bloom often. People have great success with these in screen pool enclosures, greenhouses and hanging in branches under trees. In outdoor situations grow the plant in a pot tipped on it side enough so that the water will not rest in the crown (top of the plant), see below.
Watering should be done often enough to not allow the plant to completely dry out but also not to stay soaked. Do not keep a water tray under the plant with the pot in the water. If you use a water tray then you will want to place small stones in the tray to raise the pot out of the water. This will allow the humidity from the tray to raise up but will not cause the plant to rot. Use fertilizer about 1 time per week at 1/2 recommended and add a tablespoon per gallon of NON BLEACH TYPE liquid laundry soap. We normally only use a 20-20-20 mix. If you use a bloom booster do not use more then once a month at the same 1/2 strength.
Phal's also get Keiki's that grow normally on the spikes. These Keiki's can also be removed when the roots are about 3 or 4 inches long but more care is needed so that you do not damage the parent plant. As with all orchids make sure you sterilize the cutting tool in a flame prior to use.
