    That's an awesome story, and a lot of perseverance! I have this same Phal and it's flowering for me too so it must be a Spring bloomer then. Congrats!

    I'm curious about your tap-water, was it something specific that was in the water?

    I have had the water tested for general anomalies; the water is from a well; I have a tap at the kitchen sink that is directly from the well before the softener; but the mineral content is still at the top of the limit for salt, showing both chloride and sodium. I bought two plants(not orchids) and watered one with rainwater and the other with the well water and the well water one looked bad, so I switched to rainwater, for all my plants. Without paying a ton of money to do all the specific tests the one that resounds is salt content. The water looks good, tastes good, but we don't drink it anymore.
