Default Knock your socks off Phal. Black Stones

This little beauty open today and what a surprise!
It is labled P. Black Stones and is a seed cross of P. Black Lion x P. Precious Stones. I have been growing it from a seedling for a year. Only one blossom but it has outdone its self.

I was expecting a clear red, so much for expectations.

Al

Please view at full size. I think this is increcible!

Wow is right! That really is a breathtaking phal! The color is just so unique. Much better than a clear red IMHO. Boy, if you've been raising it for a year from a seedling and it's already blooming you've really given me hope! Maybe some of mine will bloom sooner than expected. How big are the leaves? Anyway, I love it!
