    The largest leaves are 8'ish x 5ish. Currently has 8 leaves and this it's first blooming. Took a lot longer to reach blooming size than most phals but then rewarded me with 3 spikes. Been in bloom since early September.

    gigantea is such a large Phal...wondered if this primary was also going to be large...guess so but well worth it! Nice job bringing it to blooming size!

    gigantea hides it's flowers under it's leaves Looks like yours are not that pendant

    Beautiful hybrid, the petal almost flat and rounded make it suitable for next hybridization.

    It is a cheerful color! Does it flower with more than one bloom per spike?

    Cheers,
