    Default Phal species, primary hybrids, complex hybrids in bloom

    Not all of these are flowering this greatly anymore, but it's a collection of what I have (out of my 26 Phals, there are only three not in flower and or/spike, this will change soon though, since all of my equestris are almost done blooming):

    Phal. equestris aurea:


    Phal. equestris 'Aparri':


    Phal. equestris 'Aparri' pink:


    Phal. equestris 'Blue Lip':


    Phal. equestris 'Blue Lip' x self:

    Phalaenopsis equestris 'Blue Lip,' is most unusual and beautiful. This is a plant that I would buy to add to my collection if I could. I have a Phal equestris alba that was given to me by my older brother as a present; it has not flowered yet as it is a young plant.

    Thanks for your nice comments! The Tzu Chiang Orange, is one heck of a plant. These two spikes only have two flowers each left on them (they have been blooming since December though), but one of the spikes is forming new buds, and the plant is working on two new spikes. Oh, and it's fragrant too. It hasn't stopped flowering since I got it home in spring last year.

    You are welcome, they are stunning.
    Wow, does TC Orange have any spare keikis? *Kidding*

    Haha! No keikis, no. I don't even know if it's prone to make any... And even species who are (equestris for example), don't make any keikis in my home. I really don't know why, it's a bit of a mystery.

    It is probably a good sign that your orchids are not making keikis. I know that sounds counter-intuitive, but I have read that orchids tend to produce keikis when under stress - not sure if that is true or not though. (Although it is always useful to have extra plants! )
