    Default Phal Center Stage 'PR Cockleshell'

    This was one of the first chids I had way back when.... that's when I knew less than what I know now.... and I don't know much more today !!!!! Anyway, the plant got crown rot and I was able to keep it alive for about two years after hoping it might grow a basal keiki. It never did and finally it died! It is a rather difficult hybrid to find. And what are the chances that the "PR" is for Pine Ridge? Since we can't mention specific vendors, PM me as to the names of the vendors.

    If anyone has some leads as to other vendors that might sell this hybrid, I'd love to hear from you..

    Howard, I looked it up. Looks like a guy in California, John Ewing, was the one who made the cross. That is all I could find. I emailed a friend who grows and breads phals. I will let you know if he says where it can be found.

    Edit: I sent you a link!

    Hoooo! I googled this one, I sure would love to have one myself. It is a beautifully patterned phal.
