I have a Phal. Golden Peoker 'ES' that just started a spike last month. I hope to find a good pollen parent so I can try to set a seed pod. If you have something good, let me know.

Randy, I have Phal Sara Lee 'Eye Dee' x Phal Brother Purple and Phal Golden Bells Delight presently in bloom. I also have Dtps. Sweet Melody x Phal. Pink Festival which is just starting to come in bloom now.

Phal. Golden Bells 'Delight' is a real nice looking yellow. That is a definite possibility. Maybe you can put some pollen aside later.

Phal Sara Lee x Brother Purple = Brother Supersonic (I think). Is that the one from the RBG show?

Hi Randy, I could store some pollen from Phal. Golden Bells away for you but you have to tell me the procedure on storing pollen. Does it have to be put into special packaging? or refridgerated? The plant has one more bud that hasn't opened yet, so maybe it will coincide with your blooming so it won't have to be stored. As for Phal. Sara Lee 'Eye Dee' x Phal Brother Purple, yes, I did have that plant at the RBG. show.

All I've read is that the pollen can be kept in an airtight container for up to a year. (a film container?) But your plant may still be in flower by the time mine gets there anyway.

Hey. If you're interested, Randy, I have a phal that's been in continuous bloom for 5 months. The last bloom is fading now but there's one more bud that will flower in 2-3 weeks. The flower is yellow with red spots and a red lip and the name is 'are you ready for this?' -----------"(Brother Ann x Parfang Queen) X (Barbara Buddha x Deventerang) That last word is a guess because the handwriting on the tag is questionable. Let me know. As for storing pollen, Rocco, it can keep for up to a year, I believe. Kathy

Kathy check out http://home.swbell.net/haroldot/Kungs.jpg This is almost the exact cross (Kung's Ann = Paifang's Queen x Brother Ann). And the second part is Phal Jane Hudson.

I wouldn't mind seeing it. So far though I think I like the Phal Golden Bells. I've got lots of time to find that just right parent though. Randy
