    Default Phalaenopsis deliciosa

    A miniature bloom. The plant came to me in spike, but the buds it had had blasted, likely because of the climate change between my growing conditions and the vendor's. The new buds began to set a couple of weeks ago and this is the first flower.

    The flower is less than 1/2 an inch in diameter, while the leafspan of the plant is just 5 inches. Love how cute it is.

    Great species! And you've bought a nice adult plant so next year you will have an adjusted plant that might reward you with a super spike! Enjoy it!
