    I love the look of seedlings in a bottle. Just imagine how much beauty they can bring to the world if properly cared for. (No, I'm not including myself since I've just killed my second phal. I'm pretty sure it'll be the last one I kill though).

    Whoa, that is sort of cool! But won't it get too shaken up in there, poor baby?

    Phyrex, what happened to the second phal? Rotted roots again?

    I wouldn't actually carry it around with me on my cell phone or keys.
    You could loosen the media and upset the plant.

    If you leave your cell phone with this little guy attached..say..in your car during this August heat..it will bake in no time.

    Airport customs officer: You got a CITES permit for that cellphone?

    Yes Kelly. I've been trying to revive if for a while now but the rot has never stopped or lightened up. I'm saying the second phal because the first orchid (phal) I've ever bought was about 3 years ago, and I don't think it was dead when I gave up on it. It's just that I didn't have a clue of what I was doing then.

    Orchids number 3-5 (Sc. Tokyo Magic, C. dowiana, Phal. Queen Beer) that I bought are all very happy, so no worries there. It finally seems that I got the hang of it. It has probably to do with the fact that whenever I buy something I rip it out of the sphag immediately and put it back in some nice bark.
