    Wowee!!! That's a lot of spikes!! Congratulations!! You know, I particularly enjoy seeing your photos of the Phalaenopsis orchids mounted to the trees. In other threads, there have been discussions about why Phals don't get crown rot in their native habitat... and people have tried to explain why the rain water doesn't collect in the crown, but I just had a very difficult time picturing exactly how the plant would be oriented on the tree. Now I can see exactly how that whole thing works... it's very clever of the plant to grow the way it does!

    Please share the photos of these Phals when they bloom! I very rarely get to see mounted Phals with their spikes hanging down in a pendulous fashion; it would be fantastic to see how gorgeous these look in a "natural" setting (not all propped up and clipped upright like we tend to grow them when they're in pots)!

    You're going to have some gorgeous blooms soon! I'm sure you're excited! Thanks for sharing!

    The Phal with "eaten" leaves in post #4 is the result of leaf rot. I have been watching a Phal of mine going through this process. The leaf on my plant got sunburned. The tissue that was burned became soft. I have put cinnamon on the burn spots and it is now drying out. The soft tissue is slowly drying, so I hope I can save the leaf--as it is a large new growth leaf--but it will look scarred and disfigured until the plant decides to jettison it.
