Next, we have Phalaenopsis Sogo Vivien (left), which is considered a miniature. This plant currently has a leafspan of approx. 6 inches.
This last photo is of Phalaenopsis I-Hsin Spot Eagle 'Montclair'. The flowers on this plant are EXTREMELY thick, waxy, and shiny. They last for a very long time, and it is rare that the plant doesn't have at least one open flower. It is fragrant, and smells sickly sweet to me.

Thought I'd share a few blooms from my lovely orchids. First is Brassavola Little Stars. Very fragrant at night.
<----That is Phal pallens. A great, vigorous species Phalaenopsis. It is blooming for a the first time for me, and has 3 additional spikes, each with at least 1 bud, so more flowers to come.
Last, but definitely not least is Phalaenopsis Yaphon Lobspis. It is a primary hybrid, and takes after the tetraspis parent, having random red bars on the sepals and petals...It only opened one flower so far, but currently has about 5 more buds to open, which I am giddy with anticipation to see where or IF they will have any random red bars. It is a great little plant.
