    Default Phal. Orchid World 'Bonnie Vasquez'

    These two flowers have bloomed from last years spike. I've been told that this cross can rebloom from old spikes for up to four years. I haven't seen a new spike start this year. I'm hoping to get one. It's also fragrant this year and I don't remember it being fragrant last year. It's not really a very nice fragrance.

    Gorgeous! I have a similar phal in bloom right now. The heavier substance of these means the flowers last longer.

    Fantastic! Love the cleanness of the colors and how well delineated they are.
