One of my novelty phals opened bloody red! I don’t remember it like this but I’m glad I didn’t massacre it while culling my collection! Two spikes with 5 potential blooms to boot. NS 4 cm.

Very complex novelty with about 40% violacea with red from marie and corningiana, with yellow base from venosa and amboinensis (all contributing 5-10% each).

Still unregistered cross of (Jungo Smith x Yaphon Sensational).

I have a DTPS Rebel Durham HCC/AOS that's a solid dark red and a dependable bloomer, but it doesn't have the
velvet texture of this beauty. I don't buy hybrids often, but I'd make room for this one.

I absilutely love these novelty Phals, but the few I have tried didn't do well in my conditions. I need to try again soon.

Warm nights are best at 16-18C. They can tolerate cooler but sulk and easily rot.

Nice and healthy looking. I've tried those a few times, but they don't last very long. Yours looks great!
