    Default My Mini Phal.

    I have had this plant for a very long time and struggled to keep it alive, but it has been faithful in blooming each year.
    The tag has long gone (before I started cataloguing) I seem to think that it is Phal. equestris 'Pearl'. Can any of you say if this might be correct?
    The flowers are quite small, just over an inch across, and the spike branches.

    The lip and the arrangement of the blooms does indicate an equestris or a hybrid of it. At first glance I thought it was a Doritis pulcherrima.
