    Default Three Phals

    These three are blooming for me right now.

    Phal noid - a 'freebee' given away by my orchid club sometime late 2019.

    Wonderful! I love the colors and the amazing blooms! Bravo! I have some noid phals coming into bloom soon too. Always love this time of the year because of the phals.

    Cheers,

    I have a NOID like your middle one. The yellow fades to white, so when you line up three, the newest one is yellow, the middle one has faded some, and the last one is approaching white. An interesting effect.

    Yeah, unfortunately most yellow phals have the fading color trend. Another weakness is the habit of the blooms being more toward the end of the spike, and fewer of them, too.

    I wish someone would cross a well shaped yellow phal with one of the yellow Phal. stuartiana's to see if they could get some well shaped yellows that don't fade.

    All are beautiful and the most I like all are long lasting flowers.
