    Jumpluff, your pic wasn't coming in very well for me, but I saw another picture of it you had on your home page. Those little orange markings really make the flower, I think. Plus, I'm so used to seeing standard Phals--I never would have thought this was even Phalaenopsis. Thanks for posting this!

    flowers came out for me... took awhile but got there...

    "patience, grasshopper, patience"

    That has a cool "hammer" lip.... and those leaves also look huge...

    And I concur, it's those orange markings which finishes it off rather nicely.

    Cheers

    I can see it clearly, and what a nice little Phal. Does it need cool temp too to initiate spike?

    Jumpluff, no, I meant that the shape and size of the flowers in that species looks very different than the Phal hybrids I'm so used to seeing, with the big petals, etc.. It's very educational for me to see Phalaenopsis that don't look like the "typical" flowers I associate in my mind with that genus.
