    Well King K we called them 'death door' because, when we bought them they looked close to dying . They were merely dried sticks and all the leaves were gone and some were severely eaten by African snails so they were our fist attempt at trying to save an orchid .Even after I got that last one home it had a small issue with what I believed was crown rot (if you can say that with a den). I wasn't sure at that time that it was gonna be ok and now look . They really do give you hope that anything is possible .
