    They stay in bloom that long for you? I still don't do well with the phal specie types. Maybe i'll start a Phal area somewhere. I don't think they like all the heat and sun my other plants enjoy.
    It does depend on the plant. Some seem to be in bloom all the time. Others are more seasonal or just do what they want, when they want. Yes, they probably won't like really high light or high heat, but do like to be on the warm side. That's why they seem to be ideal inside plants.

    Can you send me a keiki of your peloric form? That's a rarity around here and sure would love one for my collection. Hehehehe ...... ;D
    I would if I could. I do have another keiki coming on the mother plant.

    Is there a particular one you like? I have extras now and coming that I would be happy to send to you. I have a blooming size one of the typical forms that is living on it's own and could be sent now. It is not blooming at the moment. There are also keikis coming along on the "almost alba" and the peloric. Those may need to wait until next spring since they are still fairly small and winter weather could be a problem for shipping over the next few months. No keikis yet on the alba. That one I haven't had as long.

    Hey Susan,

    Just FYI, I've got a local U.S. shipping address in NY if that's any help at all (for the pheloric form) Hehehe ... LOL!

    Susan, if you are serious I would love one. It doesn't matter to me which although I love the peloric. They are just beautiful and you must be doing something right if you are getting so many keikis.
