Gang, I have another phal I'm looking to get rid of. Though this one I wouldn't mind trading for something, rather than just giving it away. Paphs and phrags are most welcome :) Feel free to post a reply or send me a message.

It's a really nice phal I got from Al's Orchid Exchange probably 3 years ago now. Phal. (Orange County Bounty 'Midas' x manii 'Irene'). It's just blooming for the first time, and has 4 spikes in the air simultaneously, with a total of 14 or so buds. Two of the buds are open already. It's quite pretty, just not my taste in flower.

There is one main plant, and two basal keikis that are both quite large now. It has a total of 17 leaves, with a cute little speckling on them. It's quite healthy, I repotted it a few months ago and the roots were magnificent at the time. The thing is healthy, has always been healthy, no bugs to date, and it's in a 7 inch clay pot, which I'm pretty sure I shouldn't ship it in, because it's rather heavy, but we can chat about that.

Anyway, here are some photos:







Oh, I found the picture from when I repotted it in March. Out of focus, but you get the idea.

Basal or stem keikis, someone asked and now I see the comment has been removed - okay, now I feel like the guy in Monty Python talking about the sparrows. I shouldn't have spoken so soon - which is which? Aren't stem keikis the ones that grow from spikes? These are right at the base of the plant, but come from the main stem - they started like little spikes but then turned into leaves.

Hmmm...trade plant? Very nice plant. I dont really like Phals but they like me, always reblooming on spent stems. Maybe trade for money?!:D

Hey Eric, if nobody is interested in trading, I'll definitely sell it - I really don't want it. But let me try a bit longer. :)
