  1. If there is anything more beautiful than a virginal white phalaenopsis with faint blushes of gold I’m a brass monkey. I’m sorry, I can’t understand how someone could imagine a blue version would be an improvement … :)

    • They’re really pretty, yeah? I like the pure white alot!

      I’m new to orchid growing and only recently learned that phals will rebloom within 8-12 weeks if you cut the spike below the spot where the last flower grew.
      It’s best to leave two nodes (the brownish lines) on the stem for better odds: one of them should initiate some new growth leading to flowers!
      I’m DEF trying this after the flowers die!

Everyone has an opinion....what's yours?
