    Question Are Phal's sequential bloomers?

    I've recently acquired a couple of the smaller phals and they both seem to have one or two flowers at a time with more developing at the tip. Would this make them a sequential bloomer?

    There are definite some phals that are sequential bloomers -- particularly those with some bellina in them. Others will keep extending the spike for awhile during the bloom season, but probably aren't true "sequential bloomers." It sounds like you may have one.

    some of the species definitely are sequential bloomers and this trait carries over into some of their hybrids

    my ever blooming yellow phal seems to be somewhat squential blooming. However those bloomers which you would expect high flower counts at a time wouldn't be as squential

    That's interesting to note about bellina. Is equestris one of those species that can bloom sequentially too?

    I don't think so because equestris is used to breed multifloral with red lips, branching spikes.

    I expect stuff like Phal. amboinensis, Phal. fasciata, Phal cornu-cervi, Phal. pulchra, Phal. lueddemanniana to be sequential.

    I have a phal "Brother John" that bloomed for 9 months, large blooms but only 1 or 2 at a time. The only time that there was 2 was when the other bloom was about to go. Each flower lasted for a very long time so it wasn't like a whole lot of blooms but it was really beautiful. I am waiting for it to bloom again but so far no spike.
