Glad Lip Buds

by Colleen Rochette

Doritaenopsis Fusheng’s Glad Lip x Phalaenopsis (Baby Hat x Sogo Lit-Angel). What a mouthful.

During this past week Fusheng’s buds have appeared uncomfortably swollen. On Friday I was completely convinced that they would have peeled open this weekend, but no luck. As they ripen, you can begin to see the pinkish tones through the unopened petals.

This plant was from a box of eleven Phals that I had ordered from Hawaii at the end of 2012. Six of them were gifted to my Mum for Christmas and I added a few to my stocking as well.
