    It's outside enjoying the weather, too bad a snail or 20140902_094317.jpeg slug ate a hole in the top leaf!

    Nice! It looks pretty different from other photos which I have seen. Do the petals and sepals move backward more as the flower become older?

    Noaki and EGOISTA the flower opened this morning. This evening when I looked the petals and sepals were bent backward much more then they were when I took the picture.

    I get overly excited when my flowers open and I shoot my photos too soon! Lol! I will try to get a better shot sometime this week.

    Not the best shot, but it illustrates what I want it to. 20140903_172546.jpg

    A picture is worth 1000 words and this is a great picture. I have to look for my blooms, they seem to like more shade than most of my Phals. Thanks, Dan

    Thank you, Dan! And I agree with you, I grow this one shadier than some of my other phals.

    Hi Dave and Speciosa, thanks for the kind words! I'm sorry about my slow response time, but I have had a crazy week! I got the plants from Andy's, it isn't listed on his website so you'll have to call or email him.
