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.|

this one is a special plant, which seems to produce rounder/ fuller flower parts ( including extra parts on occasion ) 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!

|AHHHHHHHHHH! I want all these calanthes (but not until I get good at growing them!).|

|That is a gorgous one !|

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.
