    Smile Phal mariae In Bloom

    I have had this one for 25 months. It last bloomed 22 months ago. This spike is fully my responsibility and grew fully in my environment. Colorado is not the easiest environment to grow in outside a greenhouse. But when a bud does grow here it usually makes it to bloom.

    This has grown very slowly. Maybe added 2 leaves since I have had it. Most leaves have some brown edges. This spike has up to 5 buds possible, if all nodes develop.

    Great color, I very much like the phal species. Good work getting the species to bloom indoors.
