    Also the yellow phal, which decided to make more flowers, opened a couple of them these days. The colour of the new flowers is more intense (a darker yellow) and the labelum's pattern is a bit different. Do you think this is a light issue??(in the 3-rd picture is the old flower and in the last is the new one).

    It is possible for Phals to grow 2 new leaves at the same time. I have had several do this the last couple of years.

    It is very common for Phal. flowers to fade and change as they get older, especially yellow ones. Culture (light, temperature, fertilizer, etc.) can also change the appearance of flowers.
