    Great shots!!! You have an excellent collection of equestris and my favourite is the var 'aurea'. The primary hybrids are great too. I must congratulate you on your excellent pictures.

    It's true when it comes to some Phals, but others just produces keikis because they can I think, it's in their genes. All my equestris are young plants, except the aurea, so maybe they'll all start mass-production of keikis in a couple of years?

    Here's the funny part; I'm so used to seeing them, that I don't see how small they actually are. I was at an orchid event yesterday, where they had the normal assortment of Phal hybrids, and then they had some equestris and equestris hybrids, and I realized how amazingly small they are. Fell in love all over again.

    Thank you.
    The aurea is a gem, but one finicky Phal. I haven't quite figured out how to care properly for it yet, but I hope I will.

    Thank you.
    Yeah, that seems to be the norm with equestris.

    Beautiful phal orchids. In future postings you should post them each in their own threads so that they can be searched for by name.

    cheers,
