    Default Phalaenopsis hieroglyphica, purple dots and hairy lips

    Endemic to the Philippines, only.

    The photo above shows the tiny purple dots on the lip.
    The one below shows off the hieroglyphics better.

    I keep looking at these photos and hoping that mine will go into bud and quit all the spiking! Please send good thoughts to my hieroglyphica. I am about ready to get the salad shooter out and sit it next to the plant in the GH!

    Cheers,
    BD

    LOL, Bruce! When you said your sister had spoken for the keiki, I bought a seedling from Peter Lin. It's still small and I don't know when it will choose to do anything! I feel your pain!
