    Smile Rescued Phal in bloom

    This is one of the phals I rescued awhile back....one of them, now rootbound, bloomed and since it is looking so much better I left the bloom on to enjoy. After all it only has one lonely little bloom.....but it's a gorgeous one. I'm waiting for the nursery to email me back and give me what the cross information is.

    It's gorgeous. I'm sure the worst part is over now.
    I hope mine will return to blooming one day. It's a mess now.

    Very pretty. I love seeing a rescue phal in bloom for the first time. Never know what color it might be.

    Thanks E1;
    Got an e-mail from the nursery yesterday, this one is phal Amabilis Pink. The flower stick itself is very short for an Amabilis. And it looks like it has branched three times already. Whatever else it is, it's a survivor and a half! Gotta love those tough phals.
