    Talking Phal violacea 'borneo' June 2010

    I have posted this fragrant Phal orchid before, but since there are two lovely blooms open, I thought I would share it this year. The fragrance always reminds me of a kids cereal, Fruit Loops.

    Stunning, Bruce! What's not to love about violacea- glossy leaves, flowers of lovely hue and shape, unbelieavable fragrance!
    My violaceas too have buds that are getting plumper everyday. Can't wait for them to open. I'll post pictures when they get going.

    I really love this one. I must get one for myself. Am really getting to like these better than the large phals.
