    Who me... I'm in no way, shape or form drunk. We are talking about dyed plants and kitchens, are we not? Nothing to be exiled for.

    I love that analogy, Shane. Yea, they look like a poorly made-up 80's big hair band that never quite made it.

    Well that does suck donkey balls for sure (I meant this part: I'm sober for nearly 2 months... it sucks... please don't stop the kitchen humor just yet). The convo continued in the "Bar" area, tho I think Cakedaddy had one too many cause I can't remember much.

    I'm send all those big gaudy hybrids after yall. With all that hybridizing I think some have grown teeth and are known to eat people after entangling them in their roots.

    So even in my limited orchid experience I became an orchid snob. I thought the Phals were too common for me to waste my time with. After reading this thread I felt sorry for the poor phal and broke down and bought one from one of the big grocery stores today. I always feel a need to support the underdog!

    Thanks, the color in the pic is pretty much the way it looks in person. Shug, that's the cat, thanks you for the compliment. The Phal has no information other than its a Phal! lol It will be the lone NOID Phal in my collection. I really want to repot it but trying to wait until the blooms fall. It was only $9.99 which is why I got it, The last time I was in that store they were marked at $29.99!
