    Very very nice, thanx for sharing! I now have a cd of pictures from going to the local nurserys...I love to sit and put different pics on my desktop. Your 'golden buddha' or golden kaleidiscope is beautiful, someday maybe I'll find one and get to add it to my cd.

    Phal. Baldan's Kaleidoscope 'Golden Treasure' is very common. I'm sure if you look around, you'll find one. If I had a way to send one to you I would .... I've got 2 or 3 in various stages of quality.....some have been saved from the dumpster and aren't in the best shape

    Around here they almost exclusively sell Baldans Kaliedoscope, very few of the other varieties....I have no idea why. There are so many nurseries, but its like they all shop at the same places.

    Sounds familiar Connie - except all the supermarkets and florists around here just happen to obtain their plants from the same few nurseries in the Netherlands, who in turn only seem to grow a very limited number of hybrids. And then, we get on to the familiar UK refrain and complaint of how you never get that much variety of hybrids let alone any of the named clones!

    I'd never seen a Baldan's Kaleidoscope except online until the RHS show in London last year, and then I found out that it is a very common workhorse of a phal that a huge number of people have.
