    Default Phal. gibbosa

    This is a rather old Phal. gibbosa, a species Phal. that I picked up at Marie Selby Gardens when Maura and I were headed back through Tampa on the way home from Southwest Florida. The flowers are 3/4 cm wide and 2 cm tall.

    Such a bold shape for such a wee blossom. It's delightful!

    Thanks everyone, I appreciate your comments. It has been flowering for a while now, but still has about 10 flowers left. They are beginning to look at bit worse for the wear. Such is the way of our blooms. I enjoyed these flowers and had a good time photographing them with a tube extender, micro lens and a lot of guess work as communication between the lens and body is severed when I attach the extension tube.

    Again, thanks for all the kind comments

    Bechinolina, I searched for thailandica and was unable to find anything at all. There is plenty of information on Phal gibbosa though. Could you point me in the right direction here as you seem very sure about this new name.

    Thanks for letting me know.
