    Default PHAL. violacea var coerulea

    I was watering today and i found this little guy, if i remember correctly i must have gotten it about 2-3 weeks ago and i forgot about it. I wanted to get one for a long time but i didnt want to order online so i got this one even though it is still too small to bloom. I hope it blooms soon.

    I would give it at least another year. I would feed it a healthy high nitrogen fertilizer and get those leaves built up. The roots in that last shot look great.

    I love the species phals, but so far I find them difficult to grow. Your little phal looks healthy as can be!
