    I always promise myself I won't buy when I go to walk around one of my favorite nurseries or big box stores....and then I come home with one because the living room needs some color or whatever. I have an excuse for each one...lol. It does get easier not to buy as much...especially when you have run out of shelf space!
    Good Luck

    Your mini phal is GORGEOUS and I am just like you.
    I have no room for a greenhouse so I have to limit the size of my collection, but someday I will probably have to move to a house with more sun and space.
    Luckily my BF doesn't mind the orchids. If I tolerate his microphone collection, he tolerates my orchids. (He's a sound geek about to take engineer classes)

    I have a mini phal I bought last winter which was my loveliest orchid ever. It had beautiful dark pink flowers which lasted months. Then the leaves dried up--I must have watered too infrequently for fear of killing it with rot as I have killed so many phals. I still have the plant on my window hoping it will recover. I tried the sphag and bag method but did not get much improvement.
    Roots don't look dead, so I'll wait and see.

    Your mini is incredible...I say, keep getting the plants until you go into serious debt!

    I feel EXACTLY the same way. Mini phals are my FAVORITES.

    Just wanna share this photo of one of my NoId mini phal that I purchased in mid-July. I am just waiting for the flowers to fall off before I re-pot but I don't believe it's going to happen anytime soon.

    Lovely yellow!! R you sure it is a mini? Looks like a standard sized phal in the photo. Beautiful blooms.

    Ha ha ha....now I'm starting to think. Maybe it's a juvenile phal and not a mini. Here's a few shots of the little lady.
