    Both have some damage on the leaf, but the roots look great.

    Already scaring me with the thought of having to re-pot these. I probably will need a 6" pot to get them in decently.

    You found two very nice phals! And I like your pics'; they show the sparkly substance of the petals.

    And did it again.
    Today went by my local orchid nursery to get some pots and bark and couldn't leave without taking these home. That's 4 new ones this weekend!
    (Actually a bit more green than in the picture)
