    Phal species often seem to have very interesting shapes. I was reading the Kew monograph On the genus only this morning, trying to identify a yellow one for a beginner friend, but then put the images up On my 27 inch Mac, and suddenly realised I was looking at Cattleya canes... but along the way, had realised that I should be able get quite close, among Phal species, by the distinctiveness of each. And this is very different. Most interesting. I should look up where the Celebes are in relation to other pha species locations, but presumably Darwinian ideas about evolution explain how this distinctiveness could have developed.

    Yes, there are some very interesting Phal. species, each with their own charm. It would be an interesting research project to try and explain the distinctiveness of this species.

    You might look into Phal. cornu-cervi for your friend. That species comes in several forms, including f. flava which is solid yellowish green without the spots/bars. I find them easy to grow and once they start blooming they will bloom for years without a break. I do find they like a bit higher light and a little drier than a lot of other Phals., but are very rewarding. They also seem to be generally available.
