    Cool Phal Princess Kaiulani 'Caribbean Sunset' In Bloom

    I bought this 1.5 years ago as a Bday present to myself. It has bloomed one other time since I've had it, Jan 2015. This time I have 2 spikes, right together. I knocked off the first bud weeks ago otherwise this would have been in bloom already.

    As we say in French : "on n'est jamais aussi bien servi que par soi-même". Approximate translation : "never better served than by oneself"
    Very good one. Bravo.

    I don't think I mentioned how fragrant it is. If you want a fragrant phal, you want this one! This is the most fragrant phal I know of at this point.

    It's hard to describe but it is nice. And when I come into the house and get to the living room level,, I can smell something nice in the air.
