    Default My First and Second Phal bellina

    This was given to me by a generous forum friend last August. He grew it from flask and this is one of his 'cast off'.

    My first bellina.


    This one was labelled Phal violacea but when the bud finally bloomed, it turned out to be another bellina.

    So I got my second.

    Those are lovely. I have a soft spot for species phals. Nicely done--and a great friend.

    Yes, its those small coconut we usually buy from the supermarket as fresh coconut drink. Even the second one will be repotted in coconut shell in spring.
