These details are a tad challenging to find sometimes and worth the wait until the right eyes view it.. Beautiful color palette and looking at your pot/root studies i cant tell if that is blanket algae or moss germinating. Is this the one you mentioned? Very good strong healthy roots and its not often a phal is sold with such a good root system and quality bark. In the past have had them jam packed in moss (sold in packaging or ceramic vase) and only had its strong healthy succulent leaves to sustain it until new roots form.
    Thank you my friend Matt....hehe indeed from newbie to detective...i like it indeed took some hours to finally find it..i did have a head start because i had a tag from another phal with a web site on it..so i checked their then i saw one similar then got the name and seached the web photos...Usually if something bugs me i wont stop till i find haha....The pot is small and roots all super ok lol...it has little spag moss in it just a little...and bark well their is not much of it.....more roots than anything else.No this is not the one i was talking to you about...that one was huge and blood red and so on...this one i brought as i was sulking cuz some one brought that other one ........here ive never seen them packed with spag moss just bark ...Ive seen phals that look like they have come from hehe..Jurasic period..meaning dry as a bone like fossils in a shop ...Aww i will answer your nice message later have to have dinner now

    Hi Clive! "Buenos Aires" translating it literally means 'Good Airs' But it's actually the capital city of Argentina... there you have it! hehe

    By the way, 'Anthura' it's the name of the company that breeds orchids and anthuriums. I found it on Facebook and this is what it says: "Anthura is the world’s number one breeder of Anthurium, and is ranked amongst the best for Phalaenopsis. "
