    Default Paraphalaenopsis labukensis

    FINALLY!
    I do not have a greenhouse, or even good conditions for orchids in my little house (only the strong survive here), however, I nursed these two back to health. I purchased one from a vendor who sent me these two plants. When they arrived in the mail their leaves were long and shriveled, they had one tiny root a piece, and a note that said, "Good luck with these." Now after 4 (yes 4) years of care, I am finally rewarded and am SO happy that I just had to share!
