Beautiful miniature Phal. this species is often confused with stobartiana(fig 3) as their colour, size and shape can be very similar. One major difference is a pronounced spur at the rear of lip structure(fig2) vs that of a stobartiana(fig 4).
Much better form than it’s first bloom. This Fizzbin is scented and has a nice lip.
Got a bunch of japonicas in bloom, even got an alba form with three flower. The alba form tends to be a little harder to grow and generally has fewer flowers.
(Phal. modesta x Phal. pallens ‘Mellow Yellow’) two first bloomers. The difference in colour intensity of the patterns is striking.
Rare miniature Phal species from China.
The Pinkhouse got its shadecloth put on this weekend, that is a good sign! Summer is here.
