At home, I thoroughly photo-documented the plant (as I do for future reference) and thought it'd be fun to take its measurements. It was the largest Phal I'd ever seen, though I'm fairly inexperienced. The flower stalk measured 34" -almost three feet! The largest leaf was 13" and the blooms were 5" across.
|The bloom measures slightly less that 5" in this picture because of the curve of the petal.|
I was surprised at the size of the buds as well. My thumb size is about a 6. The bud measured about an inch and a quarter.
