    sorry but something went wrong when I posted my photos too many came out, well, I am putting up some photos of my darling orchids, the first one is a phal. (purple spotted flowers) which I had to try so hard to save from dying about a year or so ago, see "wrinkled leaves help needed" which I had posted before, now I have a great reward in a very long flower spike with another one coming from it and they are both covered, I also have some other phals with two spikes each, and I have also put up a cattleya that I have wrapped in some coconut fiber to keep cool but there are some vibrant roots on all of them, as I said before they are in sun, rain and lots of breezy days and nights, I think that is ideal conditions for them, so to those who may have questions and wonder what to do, do not discard anything just try with love and care and nurture the plant back to life Name:  CIMG0973a.jpg

    Great looking orchids! That's so neat to see some that have been nurtured back and producing so many new spikes and beautiful blooms! Just goes to show - don't think a plant's a gonner until you've tried all you can to help it survive; after all, they're pretty hardy and give wonderful results for your efforts. Thanks for sharing your pics and advice!

    They get rained on most times, like this morning but there are times I would just use the garden hose to wet them at about five o'clock in the afternoon and then sometimes in the morning too, because by morning they will be a bit dryer again, or everyday they would get watered if no rain falls
