    Default Phal. Mem. Karen Sale "Jean"

    (Phal. Heart of Gold x Phal. equestris)

    New Phal. The newly opening 2" diameter flowers seem to have more color intensity than the ones that were open during shipment. Up close, the yellow with red stripes and pink centers didn't impress me, but if I look sideways at the flowers, they seem much more orange for some reason.

    I was also surprised at how large the leaves are, given the equestris parent.

    Hi Sdahl--welcome!

    I'm assuming this is first bloom? I'll bet the yellow will deepen to orange as the flowers age a little, and hoping the form will flatten on subsequent spikes. If it does, you'll have a winner--flat, orange Phals are very highly regarded these days...

    I realize this is an old post, but I purchased this plant almost a year ago and it hasn't grown much. Is this a slow grower? Mine has only put out ONE new leaf and a few new roots, but nothing else. Also, the leaves seem to be "veining" and are turning an almost reddish color. Do you find this happening to your plant?
