The last one looks like my mystery phrag.. lol~ probably it's only wishful thinking.. :rollhappy:

I really like that last one in the first set of picture. The lip opening looks funky!! :D There should be a sunglasses warning for this post. Those red phrag hybrids are SO RED! and the orange besseae is gorgeous.:clap:

I agree with the others, the last one in the first post is very, very nice! Second favourite is the OZ besseae, what a great colour. Thanks for posting some things to :drool: over!

I was hoping for some of the red phals photos.
From what I know, Mr. Norton breeds some of the best red phalaenopsis.
Real orange red (not the purplish/magenta type)

Hi, sorry about the mis-identifications, I was over-stimulated. The first phrag photo is Mem. Dick Clements x Twilight or something, I will check w/ Mr. Norton. Although the Headmistress doesn't like it, :rolleyes:, notice it is red at the bottom of the inside of the pouch! If I don't have one of these yet it will be one of my next purchases! There were a ton of Fritz Schomburgs! [Pk x besseae] Some were on their 3rd flower! The one I foto'd had that glittery look the Headmistress likes but of course my fotog skills fell short :( There were a few interesting plants that Mr. Norton is holding for me until they get bigger.:D
The besseae I didn't measure but it was a good size and really ROUND! I think the green phrag close-up was called Green Giant? I had a good time and I recommend people pick up some of the Fritz Schomburgs.

Thanx for posting these Heather.

For the record: the 3rd photo [with the red inside the yellow in the pouch] is Phrag. Living Fire x Jason Fischer; a division of which is on the way to me.:D
Photos#7 & #8 are Phrag. Grande 'Katie' AM/AOS.
The last photo is Phrag. Praying Mantis.
Thanx Mr. Norton.
