    Default Phal Beauty

    This is a phal that I just picked up because the color pattern was just too much for me to resist! I know we've all been there....done that. And I'm trying to take this orchid fasination in other directions with other genera....not too successful today. Anyway, it is a NOID that for now I'm calling Phal Memoria Leon after my dad who tried sooooo hard to grow orchids and had such a hard time of it and he lived in sunny Florida (Stuart). So not that I'll have much success making an ID for now it stands as Phal Memoria Leon.....it looks like there may be some Leopard Prince with a yellow cross?????

    It's beautiful, and to me looks almost like it's got a little Kaleidoscope in there....Golden Kaleidoscope maybe...I agree with everyone else though, what's in a name. You picked a beauty!

    Not something many would find and not purchase. Wonderful pictures. It's a pretty one.
