Default Phalaenopsis cornu cervi

Probably not really considered 'exotic', it is the first of my more exotic species to blossom for me. There is also a bud forming on a second spike.

Al,

I'm a phal species lover! This is beautiful to me. I love the color and the wonderful shine these cornu cervi thows off.
I have an alba form, it's tough trying to get a clear up close photo of these lil guys.

Good growing

P. cornu cervi is a personal favorite, being one of the first orchids I ever owned. The one I have now is lightly fragrant, as was my original. Any fragrance to yours?

A beauty, Al! Well done!

Most of the Phals I have are species, I just love them

The cornu-cervi I have was red like yours when I bought it but due to a change in the culture (that's an assumption on my part ) when it bloomed for me, the red was very muted.

Yours is gorgeous! I'm hoping to get the red back eventually

Nope, I can't detect any scent but it's a bit cool here right now.....

Sue: In 'real life' it is a bit darker red.
