Phalaenopsis violacea I absolutely love this one! Smells like cinnamon.
Phalaenopsis gigantea Very small plant, I was surprised it bloomed. Leaves are only 8-9 inches long.
I am a Phal species I am a little on the big side Who am I
Phalaenopsis bellina(‘Ingrid Ohh’ x ‘joy’) Great form, colour and fragrance!
Happy Halloween from The gang at This Side of Paradise
Named for its markings, they remind me more of leopard spots than hieroglyphics. Guess you can’t change a phals spots!
A yellow background on this amboinensis makes it particulary striking. The leaves are a massive 16 inches long.
Did someone say Phal seedlings? We’ve been busy deflasking of late, mostly species and primaries. This breeding program has been three years in the making.
Phalaenopsis violacea Just a standard violacea nothing special. But there is nothing ordinary about violaceas, they smell fantastic and they have a intense colour.
Phalaenopsis venosa I love the smell of bacon in the morning. Forget sweet smelling flowers this bad boy smells of smoked meat, making it a favorite of mine.
Decided to try mounting a flask of Phalaenopsis pulcherrima on lava rock and on coral. They are both sitting in a tray of water.
We have been requested by our customers to do more species flasks. Of course we got right on it and I thought we would demonstrate some of size and shape differences between several species seed pods. From top to bottom: Phal. lindenii Phal. pallens Phal. cornu cervi var forma chattalada Phal. fimbriata Phal. amabillis var ...
Phalaenopsis deliciosa Same species but look how different the lips can turn out
Phalaenopsis fasciata Bright yellow with a light pink lip
Phalaenopsis maculata Added limestone this year and voila she bloomed
Phalaenopsis Horta (Phal. mannii x Phal. modesta) It’s an exiting time my first cross that I made has finally bloomed. The plant is very small and really should not have bloomed yet. It has only been 28 months from the point of pollination to flower. The flower is still cute:)

However he will not be remembered for awards he will be remembered for his passion towards orchids and their betterment. Mario was always kind to me, ...
Phalaenopsis pulcherrima f. coerulea I ordered a bunch of these a couple years ago and this is the first one to bloom. I was really hoping it was going to be the purple I expected and it was! This purple is intense and I love it.
Progress has been slow. Who knew moving 3 Cubic yards down two flight of stair would be so much hard work. 1 yard of screening. Picked some large pavers. Pavers went down easy but man are they heavy at 30 lbs a piece. Most of the pavers that needed cutting are done ...
