    A beauty!

    My phal bastianii is about to be open as well. Perhaps this week. I hope it is a nice as yours. Mine has never flowered before as I have not found a spike nub on the plant. It is somewhat smaller than Al's.

    I just found my phal bastianii's bud on the ground beneath the spike. I don't know what caused the loss. It looks totally fine except it is now separated from the spike. Another bud is forming so in a month, perhaps I will get to bloom it. I am very disappointed.

    Don't feel to bad Harvey. I knocked one of the two buds off my bastianii last week. Even in Orchid growing Harvey, one way or another the Gods must be appeased! Beats the hell out of human sacrifice don't you think? AL
