    Wink Phal gift!

    A friend of mine is very into plants but hasn't yet ventured into the realm of orchids, and she knows *I'm* crazy about them. I came home today to find this lovely little beauty on my doorstep! The flowers are a beautiful vibrant yellow-green.
    I'm sure it's some kind of hybrid without a name - there wasn't a label - but I haven't seen one of this color around here. It also looks like there's a secondary spike coming in on one of the established spikes?

    Great friend and since your phal has no name, why not name it after your friend so that every time you see the tag you remember her kindness.

    Cheers,

    That's a great idea! I hadn't considered naming any plants I didn't grow myself...

    I just discovered today while rearranging my plants that this one is fragrant! It's very subtle and all I can describe it as is "floral". This is my first fragrant plant in bloom

    Ali, you must be a good friend, indeed, to prompt her to give you such a nice little gift. Cheers to you ... and to friendship!
