    It is peach and actually a little darker than the photo shows. It does fade with age as you can see on the older blooms.

    I have heard that before and just can't believe it. This one must just love me because I don't do anything special for it. I guess it loves neglect and to dry out between waterings.
    Thanks,
    Shalene

    Nice one, Shalene!

    If it's showing off twice a year then it's a happy camper and you've learned its secrets - good job!

    I know this one. Shalene, great job in culturing this orchid. Tell us more, did you grow it like a Phal or more like a Vanda?
    It is very nice!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    I grow it in higher light than a Phal. It is in with the Oncidiums and Cattleyas. Other than the blooms I don't really think of it as a Phal. It is in a bark mix and a clay pot. I put it outside in the summer and it is under fluorescent lights in the winter.
