    Default I haven't killed them yet :D Small victory

    I have had 2 new phal's for 3 weeks and haven't killed them yet! Whoo hoo. I know it sounds silly, but phals and I don't get along, but I think I have found a couple that actually have a will to live with me. The one is even sprouting 2 new roots. I think I will finally have success with these.

    Don't you love seeing new roots? It's like the ultimate sign that they are happy to live with you!!
