I have two Phals. Neither named, one was a Christmas Present from my sis and the other a Mother’s Day/BDay gift from my son. I mark them with a pink butterfly clip for my sisters and a blue clip for my son’s. I had a lot of beautiful named hybrids that were destroyed by high winds and baseball sized hail! No I didn’t have the courage to risk a concussion to save them though tears were shed! Well I discovered my son’s which had 7 leaves suddenly is growing not one but two new leaves! Now there are 9 leaves! My sister’s had and still has 8 leaves! It has a new major root that is bright green! Both are due for repotting this Spring. I have to reduce the temps at night more to induce flowers! I am gun shy of putting them outside! (A deer ate my dwarf novelty raised from a seedling as well) Pics are included. I believe my son’s is a Doritanopsis hybrid.
