LOL, Kev. I don't think you were the "bad" guy at all! Twelve feet back from a west-facing windows and hoping orchids (even Phals) will bloom is, in my honest opinion, foolishly optimistic! I suppose, in that situation, a jewel orchid would *grow* without blooming and that might be acceptable since most people grow them as foliage plants. If, however, you're really looking for a foliage plant, get something cheaper than a jewel orchid!Originally Posted by TundraKev
You did the person a favour, whether s/he realized it or not by being the heavy. I might have been a little more tactful and said "GET AN ASPIDISTRA!"
