    I love this plant, its spectacular!! That color combination defies description. I'm so glad they opened for you too - and that you got a picture!! Wouldn't you know I have a phal viola that has been in bud for weeks and weeks, and now we are moving on thursday and it STILL hasn't opened!! I know the bud will blast when we move, I'm so upset

    Moving? I wish you luck in your new home! I hope you have found a place with lots of windows and great light for your orchids! AND, I hope your phal will open for you tomorrow!

    Thanks to this forum, I have learned a lot about growing orchids, especially catts and dends. I killed so many of them before. And I am so happy I can bloom some of them now. Since my confidence is up, I shall acquire more catts after vacation!

    Awesome! And maybe while on vacation - who knows, you might just see an orchid you want to add to your collection too! I hope you have a great get away.

    It is so hot here in Arkansas now, I wish I had a vacation planned to some beach somewhere or at least to some place that wasn't over 90 degrees and totally humid!

    Cheers,
