    Default The Devil Made Me Do It!

    I only went up to my local garden center to see what was new...didn't really expect much at this time of year...and look what happened! All of them were in sphag and that is the curse of death for me so I soaked them in SuperThrive and repotted. I am hoping the flowers don't die too soon but for me I'd rather have a health plant than pretty flowers

    Very very nice group of Phals there. The Aukland Spot is just gorgeous...I need to add that one to my list. Everytime I see one on here I think that if I can find one....it'll be mine! lol Nice job...good luck with saving them. Usually though, the faster you do what you did, the better chance they have. You may lose a bud or two but the plant will have been worth it.

    Yes, white with spots is my fav also....the others just wanted to keep spots company...didn't want spots to feel lonely leaving all the other chids back at the garden center....
