    Yes, there are... unfortunately! I really lost a lot of money last year. But yes, we do have a lot of possibilities to get phals.

    Thanks! I grow them on my windowsill, quite cold I have to admit but with a lot of light because I have a window to the south-east. Shaded by trees a bit, but they get sun in the late afternoon and evening. Temperatures... uh, I don't know in F, I can look that up later. Its around 22°C/19°C (day/night) in summer [edit: humidity 80%] and 18°C/16°C in winter [humidity 60%]. As you can see all are grown in pure bark except for the small ones that have a bit moss in.
    They are standing in clear large boxes so I can easily take them away to open the windows, and the windowsills are very crowded to make space for some more. ^^

    Hehe. I wish I had two or three of them, but I never saw it again after I had bought it one year ago. It always makes 2-10 buds on every spike (it has two), and just when they are about to vanish new buds will show up.

    Fantastic phals and that tetraspis is truly unusual.On the same spike is that the only one with the red sepal? Red Jaguar and Pink Panther are definitely must-haves!
    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks.
    That's the usual way the 'C#1' clones look like. The flowers may have some red parts in a completely random way. Usually it is said that when flowering for the first or second time (and this was the first time for this plant) all flowers are white and only later they will become white and red. So I was really really happy when it turned out I had that one red sepal. But I am not an expert on this, this is just what has been observed in some other forums.

    For the Red Jaguar, it was also the first time to flower, on two spikes, so I hope that there is even more to come in future years. I love the dark red waxy flowers.

    Wow, what a beautiful display of phalaenopsis species, and primary hybrids you have! Phal. Red Jaguar is definitely a winner, I think everyone agrees on that one...though the tetrapsis doesn't demerit due to its distinctiveness..

    I love the red on the tetraspis! I also like the first violacea. I think I'm partial to coeruleas.

    Thanks for sharing your pictures. Im living in Vietnam so I also just know some Vietnameses phalas and about 3 other phalas species from Thailan only. Now I know more from you. Ofcouse I can check in internet for other phalas species but this is from real person who are growing them.
