    Default Parade of Phals part 2

    I missed everyone here, I have been away for a while and am back now. I see a second wave of Phals began to bloom in my absence. Here are some of them...
    The first is a big disappointment a first bloom tiny Phal. stuartiana v. nobilis (hmm, looks pretty darn white to me);
    the second Phal. Millie's Tropical Sunset;
    third, Dtps. (King Shiang's Beauty 'Maria Theresa' x Regal Velvet 'Ruben' AM/AOS);
    fourth, Phal (Su An Cricket '#1' x Veitchiana 'Leesburg')

    nice ones Jenn... I like the stuartiana the best (there is something about all that white and then the cheetah like markings)... followed by the noid...

    Default Absolutely wonderful plants,

    and great photos, too.

    And, I don't see why you should be disappointed with the stuartiana. The greenish tint will become paler after a few days.

    It's supposed to be the yellow variety. There is variation, and you don't always see striking yellow, but I really was hoping for at least some yellow. I know as Phals mature (this one is actually seedling sized for this species), their blooms can develop a better quality, but I don't know if that includes color (I doubt it).
    Thanks, though. I have just a few more to add to my parade soon
