Phalaenopsis chibae

Phalaenopsis chibae
One of the smallest Phal flowers around but it makes up for it with a high flower count. The large lip is very prominent in it’s hybrids. Tying Shin Glider

Phalaenopsis Penang Girl

Phalaenopsis Penang Girl
This dark form (made with a Norton Violacea) absolutely rocks! It’s scented and blooms reliably.

Phalaenopsis parishii ‘deep purple’ 2

Phalaenopsis venosa 1

Phalaenopsis venosa
Two nice dark example of Phal venosa. Still by far my favorite scented Phal. Bacon! Yes it smells like Bacon!. Actually it’s more of a smokey hickory smell.

Phalaenopsis Lirpa 1

Phalaenopsis Lirpa
Our newly registered hybrid Phalaenopsis Lirpa(inscriptiosinensis x modesta). Again modesta’s form is extremely dominant and has a similar scent.
