    Default Flying Phal Orchid

    Just thought I would show this- I was amazed. This is a simples Phal, but the leaves are enormous- It looks as if it could fly away. I prop up the leaves with books. Each leaf is 18" long. The whole plant- flower and all is over 3 ft high.

    That's not an orchid, it's a bird of prey! Nice one I like those big ones also.

    Ditto! Great phal. Is that a kitty bed I see in the chair? Do you have kitties?
