    Yeah, you're right! I'm really leaning toward a warscewiczeanum, or a Berenice, or Julius, if I could find one of the two hybrids that I liked . Hey, my haynaldianum is coming Wednesday! I am terribly terribly excited about that one!

    LOL!!! Heather, listen to Jason, he's so right. You're wasting your time and energy on Phal hybrids when you could be tending beautiful multifloral Paphs and Phrags instead.

    Hey,I'm trying to kill it guys, what more do you want! LOL!!

    Really, I can move it out of there today, but not sure about the lack of light at this time of year, in the other location. However, now that I think about it, since the sacrifice den. is outside, its' space is free in the w. window in the loft....hmmmm!

    Patience is a virtue, you know.
    (besides, I haven't found a new one I want yet! I've seen a couple of the hybrids, but they aren't what I am looking for, and I want to hold out for Louis' warsce. division!)

    LOL, you are to funny. I try to keep my phals alive and I seem to kill them all. I don't get it. Even healthy phals I kill. I am doing ok with the sweetheart phal, but I had to repot it and I feel like I am alwAys watering it. I have it in bark w/ a clear plastic pot, so I can tell if it is dried out. For phals being a good 'first' plant, they sure stress me the heck out.

    Me too! It is a lot of work and thought for a plant I don't think too much of phrankly!

    Why do I keep putting a ph in front of everything starting w/ a F these days?
