Phalaenopsis pulcherrima is a small growing phalaenopsis with a very erect inflorescence. Pulcherrima comes from the latin for 'Beautiful', and coerulea means blue (orchid blue - more like a lilac - not true blue). Until recently, these were better known as Doritis pulcherrima, and if you've ever seen a plant tag with the label Doritinopsis (Dtps), that is what we used to call phalaenopsis crossed with Doritis. They are a little different growing than your standard phalaenopsis, but not a lot. They require brighter light than a standard phalaenopsis to bloom, and they tend to send out numerous side growths at the base, forming a clump of growths. They also tend to be summer bloomers, where most phalaenopsis are more likely to bloom in the winter or early spring.
 
Phalaenopsis pulcherrima could be grow in a vivarium or terrarium, but you would need extra air movement (a fan), and since the spikes go straight up be sure to leave room for that. My preference is to grow these in loose long fiber sphagnum moss in clay (or plastic) pots, and I put them in with the cattleyas for best blooming.
