    I LOVE this phal species! I think it's my favorite of all of 'em! It is definitely my next purchase! Granted, I say that every time I see an orchid I like on here. Heh heh heh! But wonderful plant! I love the stripes on the petals. Looks like battle scars. Give 'em character.

    A meter?! Oy!

    Zain, is it a sequential bloomer or rather one of those phals that repeatedly blooms periodically from the same spike? I noticed that the spikes on yours appear to have numberous bracts.

    Hi Paul is not sequential but more on periodically bloom on the same spike, numeorus bracts not necessarily carry flowers this is very funny character, every days the spike will grow if I'm lucky can get more than 6 X blooming per year.

    Yes, but it becomes unattractive in my opinion. When spikes are too long I cut them.
    Beautiful tetraspis, very elegant flower shape.
