    I told everyone about the new Phal I got from one of the stores and here's the big guy I picked, the one that once had two spikes. NOID. Big plant. Leaved perked up really nice after it came to live with me, losing a bottom one, but I expect that, and the others are very firm and it's looking good. Had good roots, I'm so pleased with my choice.


    My white NOID Phal that was in trouble there for a while. Seems okay now, you can see the leaf that had to be cut because of that nasty infection. Didn't spread or come back after it was clipped, both leaf and leaf half are nice and firm. (There's my tiny Cat in the back there)
    Cat's tag says: Hknsa. Sogo Doll 'Jennifer'


    And the Den that had to be bagged. Out now, has one leaf left that looks good still, and you can see the tiny new green cane in there too, by the others.
    Tag says (with correct positioning):
    POI 146 Den. Jaq. Concert
    -307HT x Big Red


    I have one more Phal, but it's in a bag, was potted in DIRT. >_< But I wanted it sooo bad. A Brother Sara Gold.

    LOL! I sleep on my bed, sometimes on the books on my bed. ^^ You don't even know the half of it. I have 35 betta fish jammed in here, three ten gallon tanks, two fives, one two, and lots of others. Then I have all the orchids. And then there's my art supplies and books and papers and DVDs... >_> Every time I get something new, I move everything around and MAKE room! Heheheh. Some of it is on the floor.

    Those are two fish quarters living besides the plants there. ^^ Surrounded by plants and fish... Ooh la la... Now I just need to clean it.

    In that container you mean next to the Phals?

    They're marbles. ^^ A fish lives in there, he just swam to the other side of the tank when I was taking a photo. He apparently didn't want to be in it!

    Hey Styx congrats on the bagged Dendrobium... new growth is a good sign! Also, the other plants are looking healthy, nice tough looking leaves. Well Done.

    Cheers
