    PHOTOS: A visit to Phil Faulisi's - part II!

    A few more photos to share from my trip to Phil Faulisi’s place a couple weeks ago – A few of you had asked for some photos of his species, and here you go – again PLEASE respect Phil and do not PM him for any divisions of the plants you see here. Such requests will simply be ignored.

    You now are entering…



    (Artwork by Mitch Davis! – Mitch if you are reading this, it was great meeting you as well!)

    Now, without further ado – may I present, some more photo’s of Phils Phriqin Phaboulus Phlants!!









    S. leucophylla ‘Purple Lips’ - as the season progresses, the nectar roll, or “lip” of this particular plant gets purple-er and purple-er, hence ‘purple lips’ you can see the faint purple markings starting now.


    S. leucophylla ‘alba’


    I really like the subtle traces of green on the nectar roll…


    A few outstanding ornatas…






    OK - not a species, but just wanted to throw this in for fun again..

    Joel- I wish you could see the detail of some of the plants Mitch painted on this plaque. There is a Cephalotus in the lower right hand corner that is remarkably realistic looking. Many of the plants he painted were actually from my collection...like the moorei 'Royal Ruby' on the left hand side.

    vraev- That leuco "alba" is typically much whiter but we've had such an unusually cool spring this year so they're showing more green than normal. The lids are often nearly pure white. Just in case anybody is wondering about this particular clone...it is a seed raised plant from seed received from Bob Hanrahan many years ago. It has typical red flowers...but I named it alba top specifically for id/breeding purposes. I have not distributed this plant around so it is not the same as other "alba-type-ish" clones that are out there.

    Robert- Your photography is making me fall in love with my plants all over again! Thanks again!!

    Phil

    Kudos to both Rob for the photography and Phil for allowing the pics to be put up.

    I am blown away by the quality and beauty of Phil's plants. I am even lucky enough to have a few and these pics still floor me!!

    Just great stuff all around!!

    Those ornatas are outstanding! And when I saw this post, and the sign, I thought it was going to be some greenhouse pictures! Not that I'm disappointed (how could you be?!).
