    Default Phal. lowii in bloom




    This is Phillip's P. lowii, which has been on vacation at our local nursery for 2 months. It had spiked before we dropped it off, but it has really enjoyed its time away from us. No leaves, just roots on the mount, but the roots have really greened up and grown. Quite the spunky little thing.

    Very pretty. Haven't seen this before. Just love that lip and the blush of pink on the petals and sepals.

    I will certainly tell Phillip - he'll be pleased.

    Phillip is holding his own, thanks. I'm hoping 2 months in Puerto Rico will spiff both of us up.
