    Julie,

    That is really pretty! Your photo skills are really improving too! It is difficult to take photos of really small blooms. Good job!

    cheers!

    Not to my knowledge - I only acquired the plant a few months ago. Are there deciduous Phals?

    Nahhhh, I am afraid there is no such thing as deciduous phal! But if I am wrong, please correct me!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Maybe semi decidous?????
    I've been reading that there are phals, especially the miniature kind, that loose their leaves in the dry winters they experience in the wild. However they don't loose the leaves if kept nice and humid in cultivation.
    So seeing as it was a mini, I just wanted to ask.

    I believe there are a couple of phals that are. I've been told phal. parishi and phal. lowii are frequently deciduous in the country in which they grow (India, Thailand) because of dry seasons.

    That being said, I just did a quick Web search.

    Not much is said other than stobartiana can be decidous:

    I'd still like to read more!

    I haven't read this book yet, but I know it mentions it. In anycase its all about Phals, so it can't be a bad buy.
    I plan on getting it soon.
    Phalaenopsis: A Monograph. By Eric Christenson,
    Try to search for info on Phalaenopsis lobbii, and you will find that they describe it as deciduous in nature.
