    Okay, now i'm jealous! lol I sit and drool over these online. If I ever see one locally it will be mine...to hide until the hubby sees the bill for it. lol Ah well...he gets over it....i so want one of these. Maybe if I don't kill the phal cornucervi I will try one someday. I keep killing the smaller species phals. Yours is fabulous!! Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks Connie really appreciate it, I will encourage you to get one but make sure improve the technique how to sustain the smaller phal species first than you will enjoy it.

    Nothing beats a phal or any other orchid in a very natural setting. What a beauty!
