    Default Phaius flavus

    Phaius flavus, prob the best specie in the genus. Flower last two weeks or more and its deciduous after flowering as it flower on the maturing growth. This is a plain leaf form which is more compact and easier to bloom. Pha. flavus var maculatus has white spotts on the leaf and its much bigger and more cold tolerent.

    First time I've ever seen this particular species. Like the flower color.

    Haven't seen anyone posting a Phaius on this forum in quite a while it seems.
