    Phal Rousserole x (Carmerla's Wild Thing X Adelaides Delight)

    Hi All-- just wanted to share one of my currently blooming orchids-- it has no "official" name-- but I'd like to give it one (I am not the breeder of this plant, just the owner!). I think all amazing plants should have a name!

    French Spotted-- I've never heard that term before-- is that a look, variety, breed?

    Gorgeous, Ryan. They look like 2 little purple peacocks peering at us.

    It's the "look" or pattern" of fine spots, used several decades ago when they first appeared - from a French hybridizer I believe. Gives you an idea how long ago I was really into Orchids. My small collection of rescued Phals are hanging in there awaiting their chance to go outside for the summer. Hope to have their new growing area set up for this fall when they come back in.
