    Default Some phals in bloom.. Happy Easter

    Just wanted to share some photos of my blooming phals:

    1) I bought this un-named perloric from a local store. It is a unique plant in many regards. Nice mango color, dark yellow lip, good flower form, and the most striking feature is the extra petal covering the column. I don't think I've ever seen that in a phal before. If anyone knows what the name of this plant could be, please kindly let me know.
    2) This red/purple phal is a first bloom seedling . Dtps. Kiss Me Kate 'Carol' x H.P. Norton 'Copper Top' . I have a few more seedlings of the same cross in buds, so I'll post the pics once they open.
    3) Phal. Hsin Sun Flower X Taisuco Windian

    Thanks for your comments. Here are some more photos. All these 3 plants come from the same flask of Phal. Camela's Brite Lites X Brother Sally Taylor. It's pretty cool to see the variations in flower shapes.

    Nice bunch of phals.I assume that the last 3 must have been raised by you after deflasking? If so congrats for growing them so well.

    Thanks Cat... Most of my phals have come from hybrid flasks or compots since I really enjoy the surprises.
