    Default Phal Schilleriana

    This is its 3rd year. Brought from Phillippines as a keiki from my sister in law. They are growing wild in her garden and producing keikis like rats produce babies. LOL. But this one seems reluctant to produce even one for me . It flowered for the first time last spring. Light pink star shape and rather small compared to the large ones produced by the hybrids. But what they lack in size, they do make up in numbers .lol. It has no fragrance, hmm.. strange. I wonder if this is a true species? Any comment on this will be much appreciated.

    from what I hear, not all schilleriana are fragrant. Looks like the species to me, with those leaves.

    I've never grown one, but the mottled and patterned foliage on yours definitely looks like the schilleriana pics I've seen. Don't know about their fragrance though--sorry....

    I remember my mother's phal shcilleriana has scent. Maybe it was the wrong time of the day when I took a sniff with my phal when it was in bloom. Thanks.
