    Chu, its a really beautiful and unusual bloom. Thanks for sharing it. I'm trying to keep my 'wish list' from growing too large, but plants like this are making it soooo difficult

    Good growing,
    Tony

    Man, Canh, it does look like a dragon. Love this one. Great photo! I would not have guessed from the bloom that it was a phal orchid bloom.

    Cheers,

    Confused here. Is that non-resupinate? I can not tell up from down but it sure looks like it belongs in a Chinese New Year street parade!!!

    Oh, so the fangs really are attached to the column, not the lip. Very nice, I have never seen a column like this.

    A very interesting phal. Never seen this before. Great shots, especially of the 'dragon head'.
