    Thanks for posting Gilda. That not a phal that you see every day. Where in Chattanooga are they located? My parents live very close to Chattanooga, so I could visit their greenhouse when I go see my folks.

    Oooh. That *is* nice. I love orange Phals! They're a refresing change from the ubiquitous purple / white / yellow. Gilda, how many blooms do you typically get on a spike with that plant?

    nccclimber...Line's is located in Signal Mt. You can't miss it and they have SEVERAL greenhouses open to the public.

    Jason, that asconopsis is Irene Dobkins' Elmhurst". Much smaller flowers.

    Lja, this is a first bloom seedling...so it only has 3 ...I bought several seedlings last year and have been very happy with them. One got best phal in our show in March.
    The first bloom,they have only had 4 or so blooms,but I had one to throw another spike and it had a nice shingled row of 7. Their colors are great and they have some that don't fade! This one is staying pretty true and the flash washed some of the color out. I hope it does have a better flush of flowers next year.

    One thing though it is the only one that bloomed late..so you can always use a summer bloomer.

    Well, four blooms on a seedling is pretty darned good, I think. We've got a Mandarin Fire 'Orange' seedling that just got done blooming, and that poor little spike could barely support its two flowers!

    Those really vivid oranges are hard to find around here. That one puts my Little Emperor 'Orange,' which is actually peach, to shame. What an awesome flower.
