    Default Phal equestris excitement

    I was just looking over my orchids (duh) and noticed that I am getting a keiki on my phal equestris!!!!! It was a keiki itself last year and was just removed from the spike last fall. It started flowering this spring for me and has kept at least one flower at all times since then. I was looking at the current flower and noticed that there was no new bud showing after it, but a very tiny leaf!!! It is a bit small for me to get a good picture with my cruddy camera, so you are all just going to have to wait!

    Your phal loves you, keep us updated as the keiki grows. At this rate you will have a ton of equestris in a few years.

    Phal equestris love to make keikis!! So happy for you. I got my first Phal equestris orchid from Gin several years ago. I now have probably 10 of more plants. I use them as trades. An orchid that helps build your collection for sure!! Nice growing!!

    cheers,
