    Talking My Phal is Blooming! Check it out!

    There are finally enough flowers blooming so I can take pictures and post them. It seemed like eternity since I first discovered the spike on Jan. 7, and now it's finally blooming! It has a spike of 5 flowers and 2 buds. Then I also added a picture of a "glittery" flower. The name is...too long...I forgot it, so I'll check the label later. Well, enjoy the pics!

    Here's a picture of another phal of the same cross (yep, I have two phals of the same kind). It spiked on Jan. 7 too, now with 6 flowers/buds. Checked label: Phal. Pinlong Cinderella x Phal. Super Stupid Brother Purple X self. Flowers are a little different from the other one...

    Lily--the third picture down in your first post, the side view? I love it--that is a GREAT shot!

    Congrats on reblooming them, too!

    I like the pink blush around the pink lip -- very pretty. Good work.

    i agree,
    the side view "glittery" shot is beautiful,
    you really capture the beauty of the flower that one often
    only sees in person.
    it's a very sweet looking cross,
    and with a little scrolling i can kind of tell the differences.
    You said you have multiple plants of the same cross,
    did you grow these from flask?

    Thanks for the compliments, everyone

    No, not from flask. I just happened to buy two phals in one pot...but I do think flasking is cool! I should try it someday, when I can hopefully acquire more patience !
