Phal Zuma Pixie 'Kultana' --- and the colors even came out accurately on these pics

Bought this at a show last winter/spring in bloom. Over the summer it bloomed rather sequentially. Each flower lasted about a month. The flowers are large for the size of the plant, IMO.

On this spike I got 4 flowers at once. However, I've already had one flower die. My suspiscion is that being such a small plant [as you may have noticed in the pic itis in a 2" (5cm) pot] that it was too much of a strain to maintain 4 flowers at once.

Really adorable, Paul. Hopefully when it gets bigger it can support more flowers at once!

Pretty, pretty, pretty! I love the white edge and dark wine lip. I've never seen a Phal so small.

Wonderful photography and demonstration of its size!
Thanks, Paul!

Adorable! You matched the color of your print to the flower. I'm impressed.
