    Default Not a Phah killer any longer, I think!

    I am glad to say that I think I have finally figured out how not to kill any more Phaphiopedilum orchids. In the past years I have tried many but the best I could do once only is to get one to re-bloom but unfortunately what bloomed was half the size of the flower that was in bloom when I bought it and not in the best shape. As you can see from the photo I think I got that killer disease beat, last year only one flower this year two!!! Now I can look for more next weekend at the Taimiami Orchid Festival. Enjoy!!
