Yes, you can train it. Get a small diameter wooden stick (taller than the stem itself) and then lightly tie the wayward stem to the stick. Lightly tie is the key here as you don't want to damage the stem. It works for me.
I just bought a mini phaeleanopsis(sp?) at an orchid show a week or two ago. I chose this particular one because it had lots of healthy leaves. It has a spike which has been growing, but it's not growing straight up. Is there any way I can train it to start growing upwards instead of sideways? Like I said, it's a mini...potted in moss. Any advice on this little guy would be much appreciated! Thanks!
