    I just love how short the spike is on it. I'm sure it probably has something to do with being a younger plant, but still, so cool!!

    Default Nope!

    Phal bellina is a sequential, not an "all-at-once" bloomer like most Phal hybrids (amabilis). The spike continues to produce flowers as one drops off...therefore..they start short and continue to lengthen as they produce more flowers. Old flower spikes from bellina should be left on the plant as they can bloom during the next season as well.

    The newest leaves are about 7" long each. Not too big...(For comparison, the leaves on my adult P. amabilis are about 11" long each).
