    Smile My 8 year old Phal. "Sunshine"

    I call her "Sunshine". I don't know the actually parentage. She has bloomed for me for 6 years around February. The last 2 years I had decided to give her a blooming rest period by removing any bloom spikes she tried to grow. During the summer she actually had 12 leaves. She dropped 4 leaves, then put on 2 leaves at the same time.She is sporting 10 leaves. I may let her bloom in 2008.

    Sorry about the past post. I must have read over the limitations on the size of an image attachment.

    Very well grown phal. I hope you will let her bloom next time. I bet the spike and blooms will be amazing!

    Cheers,
