    Default Phal bellina

    This is the first flower for this plant i aquired Nov '04 , it had 1 a few months ago but it just yellowed up & fell off.
    Plant only has 2 full size leaves.Flower is 2" across.
    Spike is only about 3" long but it takes longer to form than my Phal hybrids with 30" spikes.Flower is scented but i,ve hayfever @ the moment so can,t tell how strong & what it smells of.Root growth into s/h is extensive , it really has taken to the medium with gusto.

    What a perfect flower! I love Phal. Bellina because of its fragrance and that nice purple blush.

    That is cool, Steve!

    This is the one we have here that is similar (under the old name), it smells like Froot-loops cereal.

    Anyway, it is one of my favorites!

    Cheers!

    Well a new flower bud is swelling nicely & the flower has turned a lovely yellow.
    I suppose it,s just about ready to drop off but @ the moment it looks really cool.

    No it hasn,t been photochopped & the colours are very accurate.

    Ahh - my first bloom is just about all the way open. I will post my photo later. Mine has another tiny bud on the same spike, and a second spike started also. I'm thrilled, my first bloom on this plant. Steve, your plants always look great.
