    Default Renewed Hope

    I know this won't be very interesting or even noteworthy but I am offering this picture to those of us that have knocked off an orchid or two...for me, well, I'm well past the "terrible 2's". There is hope for those near dead phals as this picture reveals. They say, "Better lucky than good.", and I would agree. As you can see the massive crown rot and the three new growths...and flower spike(well the flowers have finally died, just lazy about cutting it off). I have several other phals that I almost knocked off this past year and have put out basal growth....so for all you guys and gals who have chids that you don't think will make it because of crown rot, hold on and give it your best shot...at least until the fat lady or man has sung...
