    Default Phal Brother Cat's Paw

    I bought this little beauty on OrchidBids. I unfortunately broke off the second bud while watering last week. But he is a cutie, with definite yellow shading on the edges of the petals and sepals.

    Oh, this is a terrific one! Was this from our former forum member? I got a bunch of phals from him, too, and they are all spiking about now, but none close to bloom.

    Very pretty, I just purchased a Cat's Paw Firebird that is a deep red. It is in spike now and has been on my wish list for quite awhile.

    Yes - I have 3 more I got in various stages of spiking. One about to open, 2 others just beginning their spikes.

    Thats a nice P. Brother Cat's Paw. They are commonly used in breeding to achieve reds.
