    My poor wedding orchid went through both good times and bad at my house. For a few years I pretty much forgot it and it was down to like 2 leaves when I realized I wanted to take care of it. It had 9 right before I lost it. They can be really tough. Here is a picture taken just a few months before she was gone. BTW, that is an 8" pot, I see there's no scale really in the picture. I didn't ever get keikis from it, they are actually pretty rare if you aren't using keiki paste. I'm really sorry, I don't have a name and I doubt I'll find one even very similar to it. However, I have many nice orchids to enjoy.

    These phals are usually called Harlequin Phals. They are very pretty have very good substance but most are NOIDS.

    Carolla, Don't know how I lost track of this thread - have to tell you that IS a beautiful pot and drip tray! Have you managed keiki's with other orchids? My little keiki shows no sign of a root yet. It's been five minutes since I checked, maybe there's one now... be right back!

    I'm glad you have others to enjoy. Saddens me to think about your loss

    If I had a orchid 37 years I'd be sad to see it go too! Still for a plant that's a lot of years and a lot of blooms.......................AL

    I've enjoyed the photos of your Phals Terry. I especially like the spotted one. I nearly always see spots and like spots! AL

    I found that pot at a department store (local chain I fear) that has a large garden center that sells a lot of orchids. It's my favorite local place to get pots.
