    Default Big Mamma of my NOID Phals

    This NOID has really out-done herself this year. The main spike and two sides has 25 plus buds and blooms this year. Seemed to take forever for the buds to open, The spike formed in early September and the first bloom appeared in early April. I have always liked this one. Just wish it had an ID.

    From Sept to April , that is one long wait, but well worth the reward with its beauty and many blooms.

    Unfortunately I kept it in the same spot instead of doing gradual turns which resulted in a couple of the side spikes growing in the same direction as the main spike. By not doing gradual turns two of the side spikes mixed in with the main one causing buds and blooms massing together and not giving as nice a show as it would have had I moved it slowly with the light.
