Phal finally bloomed
Default Phal finally bloomed

This is the first bud. There are about 6 more on the spike. It's a lovely white with pink in the center and a yellow lip with burgundy-ish dots.

The Golden Urchin also bloomed and it also put out another spike with buds which look like they will soon open.It is faintly fragrant.

The other 2 full size Phals are also in spike! Can't wait.

It has started to begin raining here again,dry season being just about over. The last two rains I have rolled their cart out from under the awning and they got a good soak.

But the ones with flowers I don't leave out all the way as I feel the rainfall sort of damages the flowers. Maybe it's just me,but they looked kind of droopy so....

The rain works miracles for them though.

I have developed a new love for Phals!

I love the white phals. I have two and love it when they flower. The flowers last for months. The brassia looks really nice.
