    Wow! I frequent a LOT of orchid forums, and have done so for a long time, but I don't think I've ever seen a thread in which there was SO much agreement!

    hehe We are all brainwashed! Well, more likely, we have all bought compacted Phals and know the problems associated with them. I foolishly will buy them on deep markdown, even with the compacted sphagnum moss root problems. I've learned to re-pot immediately when I see that, not to even wait for the blooms to be done, because by then the plant will be too. The poor things need to breathe! And I learned a lot of that from you, Ray!

    I would agree with both Karin and Carol, take it out of the moss ASAP!
