    Default POP!

    If it popped with liquid inside..that is definitely slime mold. I've popped a few fert pellets and they turn to dust...

    Shaydra....If you question your phals health, the best thing to do is cut the spike. Even on my healthy plants, I cut the spike. (I mean, after 3+ months of phal flowers, I get tired of them and I can wait until next year's bloom.)

    I'm feeling really bad about this just because I've only had it a week or two. Granted, I didn't buy this at an actual garden store, so you know it probably wasn't getting proper care before I got it... but I was hoping I could make it happy.. not wilt. It's been a while since either of my 2 catt's bloomed... My Noid because of health issues, the Bc Hamana Soft just because it's decided to be stubborn. *sigh* :'(

    I'm going to try fertilizing it today (they're all due for it anyway) and I'll see how it's doing when I get back on Tuesday. If it's no better, I'll bite the bullet and hope for the best.

    Shaydra,

    These plants teach you patience more than anything else.

    Actually, it's a conspiracy by orchids and orchid nurseries to get you to buy more plants, so that you always have something in bloom
