In spike: Phal. equestris (rosea x aurea)

So I was thinking to myself the other day as I was watering my small phals...I wonder how big a Phal. equestris has to be to be "blooming size"?  I have a tiny seedling one that I picked up last year at a local nursery that I really wasn't expecting to be large enough for at least another year or so, given the size of the other equestris I have.

But, apparently the answer is:  this big!

It's so tiny!  I believe that's a 2.5" pot it's quite comfortably living in.  And I'm curious to see what color this one comes out.  Rosea is a light pink/rose color; aurea is white with a yellow lip.  Really really hoping for an orange.  I've wanted an orange equestris for a long time.
