    Default Phal Brother Sophia 'Sea Jewel' - Phals Enjoying the Day

    Another round opening up on this beautiful day.


    Check out the petel base... don't know if these secondary buds will open.....




    I got this last year and the petals were just as you see them....while it appears healthy, you have to ask, "Virus?"

    I don't think i've ever seen two flowers come from one spot like that...i'd love to hear one of our botonists or "mycologists" to explain this one for us.

    Be very neat if the secondary buds bloom out. Take it that this plant has never done this before?

    I didn't originally pay attention to those secondary buds.

    With the amount of mericloning going on, there has been a great increase in Phal mutations over the last 10 years or so.
