    Red face Phalaenopsis KV Charmer in bud

    Had this Phalaenopsis for about 2 years now, which is the same plant in my keiki paste experiment > http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...xperiment.html 1st trial of keiki paste only induced spike not keiki. 2nd trial on the induced spike produced a keiki. I just apply it on one node and forget about it and one day I saw a leaf and from there it grew quite fast.
    Finally it reblooms for me - au naturel. I think few months of rain really helps to induce the spike. It could have been 3 spikes on the mother plant but the 1st spike became dormant, then only it puts out another 2. The spike on keiki is like a surprise gift because I didn't expect that to happen. I stake the spikes even the keiki very late. Luckily I didn't break anything!
    Hopefully, the precious buds will not be bothered by anything. And we shall witness how the spots look like this time around. After it finished blooming, I will detach the keiki and mount it on a piece of wood.

    P.S. Can you see some scratch marks? That was the work of those pigeons.

    Comparison of the flowers. Left: When I first buy it. Middle: Current flower. Right: Keiki paste experiment. The flower is not flat but at least better shape than those of keiki paste experiment's. The yellow colour I cannot compare because of the different lighting (perhaps the yellow is better? Can't remember). Red dots are more intense when I bought it, but now quite sparse and small.

    I think these hybrids with the yellow background and red speckling are my favorites. Although large white ones are up there as well.

    It is rather common hybrid, widely cloned throughout the world (I guess). I love large white Phalaenopsis also even though some people said it is too cliché and 'bridal'. My two large whites are massacred in my early years. I have not replace them yet.
