    one of the flower is near to full bloom but couldn't wait to post.....seems like orchid cultivation has yet to help me to cultivate my patience. haha

    It is a wonderful Phal species, Ian. Is it fairly new to your collection?

    been with me for two years plus to three.
    when i first purchased it, it came with two leaves about three inches plus to four each . but the roots were super long, three feet plus if i am not mistaken because the seller was suspending the plant with just a wire hanger and the roots were more than below my waist line from where they are hanging( above my eye level). super straight roots and i still remember having a hard time putting them in my car, being extremely careful not to break it.
    after a year plus with me it suffered from crown rot but luckily manage to save it in time =D
