    Default Was an ugly duckling

    This guy was one I bought a few years ago in a bag for 4.00 .The small leaves were limp,tattered & torn --very forlorn at boxstore.I just knew it had some good breeding so after some TLC & a couple years of new leaves it became a swan--in my eyes.
    The cross was Brother Sara Lee 'Eye Dee' x Taipei Gold

    Gorgeous! I'm not usually a phal fan but I did recently buy a Brother Sara Gold cross for my mother--looks just like yours but is heavenly fragrant. Any fragrance to yours?

    Hi Jane,
    I love the natural way the spikes fall. Very nice.

    And that *is* a swan. Nice find, and good rescue--obviously thriving in your capable hands!
