    Default Little Green UFO

    This is my little green colored Phal that I attached to a palm last fall. It finally acclimated to the light after a receiving a sunburn. It is loaded with buds. I think I paid 1.00 for it. It was at death's door.

    It really was a surprise when it bloomed. I had nary a clue as to what color or shape it would be. No tag and only 1/2 a plant. It had rotted.

    I just love this little plant for the sheer tenacity of all these blooms. It has truly been neglected after mounting it on this palm.
