    Default Mini Phal

    Something I saved from being drowned to death at the local garden center. I guess the only reason I even go to this center is to save chids from their neglectful keepers. I've even offered to volunteer but they're not interested..... I know this flower is rather common among pink-veined phals, but it was soooo cute and drowning. The plant is only about 5" tip to tip and the flower about 2".

    Wow! I wish they had mini phals at my garden center! I just sent away for some in bud and it cost A LOT! But anything for orchids...it is sad when you see them dying at garden centers and big box stores because no one cares enough not to overwater them.
