Phal. Shingher Pure Love x gigantea Female
Default Phal. Shingher Pure Love x gigantea

Hi there,

It's still gonna be some more weeks but i'm posting so you could join my anticipation during the wait

This is what i'm hoping for:



And this has been her progress so far:

08.13.


08.24.


08.31.


It's begun to develop some colour.
And what's interesting's that when the first pic was taken in the middle of August i was sensing quite strong fragrance from the tiny bud! (Thought i was crazy but my hubby confirmed - not that i was crazy! ) Is this a thing, does it happen sometimes? I've had quite a few of these babies before but i've never come across this phenomenon.

I've never heard of scented buds, yours must be a first!

Looks the the flower is nearly there, I'm looking forward to the final photos in a day or two!

Looks like you are going to get the textured color all right. Very Nice!

And it's quite interesting, coz it lasted only a few days and never came back. I would clearly think i only hallucinated or smelled something else if my hubby hasn't confirmed that he also thinks that it was this bud.. <We're both crazy!>


Sooooooo. Here we are:


Not quite like the sample photo, have to say. I'd be much happier if it resembled that picture more (pattern-wise, with bigger spots) but i'm still loving anything gigantea and looking forward to its final shape stretched. Btw looks more like a Mok Choi Yew, doesn't it?..

So it took about a week after the bud opened for the fragrance to return. First if was NOTHING, then a "vegetable smell" and now it has the same fragrance that i smelled when the bud was still tiny. That is a complete mystery!

So i guess it's the most streched it's gonna be.


I know it's silly but since the fragrance returned i like it so much more..
