    Default Jumping on the band wagon...

    Here are the 3 phals I have in bloom right now. I can only take credit for 1.75 of them. The first was in bloom when purchased. The second had a little teeny spike but I didn't kill it before it bloomed. The third had only 1 flower when purchased. It's redeemed itself. Now have about 7 blooms.

    NOID Phal. Anyone had any idea what this one could be? It's very pretty. It almost looks like the blooms fade in color a little as they get older.

    I was a little disappointed with this one. i was hoping it wouldn't be as uniform and would have more of the red streaks through it as some of the ones that you can find on the internet. Still, for a first bloomer, the flowers are quite big, and still pretty.


    Another NOID. My camera just can't pick up on the deep purple color. This is the best I can do. This guy started growing new buds very quickly when I brought it home. It might have been growing too quickly. A couple of the flowers are missing a petal or sepal here and there. Some of the flower also have a very cute white edging. You can almost see it in this picture.

    Very nice phals. I'll let others play the name guessing game... There are so many phals and a lot look quite similar.. The yellow noid is my favorite. Good Growing.

    Jason once said to me that you can accept credit and accolades for purchasing well! In that spirit - wonderful blooms!

    I don't like guessing at Phal, because so many are so similar. But I love them all!

    Nice! I really really like that Ever Spring Prince! That Phal and the related clone (Harlequin) have been my favorites for many years!
    Cheers. Hoa.
