    Default The Joy of Phal equestris

    I happen to love Phal. equestris and have a collection of them within my orchid collection. What's not to love-they seem to be in bloom all the time and are great at multitasking-blooming and growing keikis all at the same time . I call them the Energizer Bunnies of the orchid world.

    Here are some currently in bloom:

    Lovely alba form in close to full bloom




    Another almost alba-tends to have some yellow on lip and more yellow around the callus


    A keiki from my very first equestris. It is peloric. The mother plant is also in bloom and has been in bloom for over a year




    More typical form

    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.

    Nice Plant and very robust blooms...

    Apparently, Phal equistris has very enduring blooms. Here's my version of the plant...


    Phalaenopsis equistris var aurea

    Cheers

    All very nice equestris... the best thing about this is that they never seem to run out of
    blooms.

    I love the peloric form and your alba is really nice.

    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

    Lovely Susan! The Phal equestris we have was a gift from an orchid buddy several years ago. That one plant has made so many babies. I have shared many with other orchid buddies. I love how long they stay in bloom. Great plants. I need a alba one too.

    Cheers,
    BD
