    Default Dwarf Phals

    My 2 boys gave me each an orchid for Mother's Day. They gave it to me today! Big surprise. They must have noticed my renewed vigor for taking care of these babies because this is the first time in a long time that I've had a lot of new stuff! Really cute, tiny phals. I didn't know they bloom this small... and the flowers are tiny too. The 2nd picture shows them next to my big phal for comparison.





    I love these little things!

    These are multiflora Phals. They are a lot of fun and you can have more of them due to their small size .

    They are beautiful! And, Tess, I think is time for you to change your name. Your orchids look great! (I may need to borrow the name?! LOL)

    Margarita, you're crazy! I have yet to make my orchids bloom... getting them from the store with a bloom already doesn't count.
    But, I'm hopeful. I think this time I'm finally gonna birth some flowers...

    Susan, thank you so much for the ID. I'm reading up on the multifloras now. Wow, there are tons of beautiful paint jobs on those multiflora petals!

    Tess, I know I am……. But hey- at least you can keep the flowers! I am buying orchids with flowers and after couple of days they are gone…Now I am getting babies so at least I can wait until your name is available…LOL

    These guys are really getting popular. My grocery store carries them, with tags, for $8 each.

    Very cool.

    I have a Phal Sogo Tris that is smaller than the minis in the picture. These are little fun equestris hybrids.
