    Smile Phal Cornu-Cervi 'Millie'

    It must be cornu-cervi time of year! Here is my favorite of all my phals (and of all the phal species for that matter!).

    I bought it in bloom in 2007, and it was a small keiki. Every spring it gives me a couple of buds, but nothing like what the mature "ever in bloom" sizes can produce, so I hope I can one day get it to that size!

    For some reason the past 2 buds have opened very small and completly green and mishappen. THe only thing I can think of was that developing under lights was cause of it, since this one's buds developed under natural light in my room. (The lights are off for the summer)

    Anyway, I was very excicted that this one is normal, and hope that the next ones are as well.
