    Default phal in bloom

    I was holding off on posting a pic, because I noticed after the first four flowers opened, there were 4 more on the way. It's kind of nice because I've had this blooming since the end of January. this pic was taken about 2 weeks ago. since then 5 flowers have fallen off, but I still have 3 left to enjoy!

    eta... I added pics of 2 other orchids from about 2 years ago. The white one is my first orchid . It ended up giving me another plant,but it hasn't bloomed since I divided them.

    thanks for liking them! The first one is still blooming and the yellow and white haven't done anything recently. If anyone can identify them, that would be great. I swear I had the yellow ones tag. I remember it being very hard to read and it was a persons name, if that helps. Thanks!

    eta: I just searched yellow phal and found Brother Lawrence, which is what I remember. I think mine is a hybrid because the name was longer. If anyone knows what the other half is, please let me know. I might recognize the name.

    It looks amazing, how did you get it to have 2 spikes and bloom like that?

    The one spike was new and the other was a shoot off of another spike. I did use a clip so the new one was more upright. Clipping it up was the only thing I did. Thanks for the nice comment!
