    Thanks guys! Smartie2000--I don't know if it would win any awards, I guess it has the pedigree anyway. I enjoy it for sure. I like it so much in fact that I just got a little compot of a cross with this phal as a parent.

    YOu might try searching for Everspring Prince "Pretty Cat" or Everspring Prince "Harlequin" -- they are VERY similar, if not different plants awarded from the same cross.

    I did! The shame of it, not that I am desperate or anything. I really liked the "Pretty Cat"s that I saw. Have just googled the "Harlequin".... very nice too! Definitely prefer the Pretty Cat and your one

    Big sighs all round. Will have to keep looking...

    I'm hoping that one of my first-time spiking phals would give something this spectaular...
    I have Phal Ching Her Prince, Phal Haur Jin Star and Phal Tristar Diamond that can be potential harlequins...I can't wait to see what I get! but the spikes are really slow (maybe because they are still babies?)

    hmmm....I'm not really a phal collector but I think I might have to get something similar to this one and sadie already named some for me to look for later

    I'm very behind/outdated in the new phal colors and patterns that exist now!...all mine are the old colours from the past

    But not everyone likes all the new colours, so that's ok. I love really finely spotted phals, but not all of the big spotted harlequins. I'm not such a big fan of the very dark colours either. However, I do really like the almost smeared colouring of this one.

    I never used to like white phals - and I certainly don't seem to want to buy any of the really large bloom size hybrids - my personal taste definitely seems to run to the miniatures. But then I do like the large rasberry ripple effect hybrids like Baldan's Kaleidoscope. The list could go on, there are so many colours now to choose from, everyone can be happy!

    Sorry went off topic a bit!

    I have some dinosaur noid phals lol (well maybe not that old, when I helped judging for the society, the judge did show us what the traditional old white hybrid looked 20 years ago, it was well bloomed so we gave it a ribbon and it was still a charming plant)... the petals are much flatter now, colours are more vivid, rounder, etc... My old guys are still pretty plants, but once I saw the really good ones in person at a show then my old ones aren't exactly up to date

    My mom when crazy when she saw a harlequin at the grocery store, it's a Phal Yu Pin Pearl. (She's a department manager so she sort of bought and took the plant from the storage room before it went out to the public!) It's currently in bloom on old branched spikes, but at a quality that is not photographable (maybe later on new spikes), and it did not take any pollen from a selfing. (I'm gonna try again using one of my first bloomer's pollen) During the summer the blooms were bigger and flatter, and they actually got bigger than the original nursery blooms during the sunny summer days. I think light is very important for this one

    when I surf the web there are new types of phals coming from asia, probably soon to be mericloned and sold. I don't think harlequin is enough to describe some of them that are still called harlequins

    Very nice indeed.
    I am fickle about Harlequin's , some i love some i really would not give room to.I do have an Ever Spring phal , namely Ever Spring King"Lee".I bought it from a nursery that was selling some-one's collection , the plant was awarded @ some level back in 2001 but what i got was basically a keike .The main part of the stem was brown & shriveled with a 4" keike on the side , hopefully it should flower this year.

    That's a pattern I haven't seen. one thing with harlequins, there are a lot of variations!
