Glad you like it! Smiling

Phaiocalanthe Kryptonite 'Ursula' - the plant which had my name on it and so had to come home with me.

Oh look at those peachy tips!!! My Aerangis distincta made a lovely spike and then bud blasted so I couldn't see the peachy color which I waited for for 2 years. Sigh. The spike is still green so I left it just in case.

Kathy,
this one is a special plant, which seems to produce rounder/ fuller flower parts ( including extra parts on occasion Smiling ) and particularly nicely colored tips. I hope this plant blooms again one of these days too.

Isn't distincta one of those which takes a year or 2 to get that spike too bloom anyway?

Oh! Well it looked like it had flowers that dried up but maybe next year! My citrata has green spikes waiting too. But it also is growing a new spike.

Yes, that one has a much rounder shape than distincta and extra petals (very special), but my fav ones have that peach color on white. I sure hope my distincta has it since that was what motivated me to buy it. If not, I will put this on ye olde wishlist!

Thanks!
I was curious about growing this one since it is one of the parents of the Phaiocalanthe Kryptonite. ( the other one being Phaius tankervilleae). Kryptonite inherited its deciduous nature from the Calanthe Rozel. That I consider a good thing, since it won't turn into a huge leafy monster.
