    Default cute lil fella....

    Phal Zuma Pixie 'Kultana' --- and the colors even came out accurately on these pics





    Bought this at a show last winter/spring in bloom. Over the summer it bloomed rather sequentially. Each flower lasted about a month. The flowers are large for the size of the plant, IMO.

    On this spike I got 4 flowers at once. However, I've already had one flower die. My suspiscion is that being such a small plant [as you may have noticed in the pic itis in a 2" (5cm) pot] that it was too much of a strain to maintain 4 flowers at once.

    That is really awesome. I would not have guessed it was so small from the first photo. Nice!

    Cheers,
