    Smile Phal NoID2 In Bloom

    I bought this phal from our local orchid nursery. When I got it home, I found no tag! But I did find mealy bugs and it caused the flowers to drop within a few days of bringing it home. I removed the old spike. I was able to cure the orchid from the mealy bugs and get it to grow new leaves and a new spike.

    This is the first images with my new Nikon D5300. Auto-focus off. Taken with the 18- 55 mm zoom lens. I am waiting for the macro lens to arrive, hopefully tomorrow. This is the only decent image so far.

    Looks very much like a Phal. Black Jack to me... It's not the best picture and the color isn't quite as winey as it ought to be, in fact the color of mine matches yours more than it matches my picture - I took it a while back, but I saw your NOID and immediately thought of it. What do you think?

    My Black Jack is over 15 years old now and each big leaf is a good foot or more long, it has 16 leaves on it and won't really fit in my kitchen sink. It's a great plant, my oldest and one of my favorite Phals.

    After Googling Phal Blackjack, I tend to agree. Close enough for me to tag it! Thanks Carol!
