It was tough not walking out with some, but I have most of what he was selling this time. His stock changes week to week and they are all good quality...anyway the roots look good! And the flowers are hugh...some 5" across! I know it is all in the genetics and the growing but they do look good!
    Apopka, Florida is one of the largest concentrations of tropical plant growers in the worldl

    I don't grow Phals...but I would have "bit" for 20 bucks!

    Oh my God! Wow! A sea of colorful Phals ... who can resist that?

    Looks more like an orchid show than an orchid market.

    SHAME! SHAME! SHAME on you! How dare you not buy any of those beautiful phals? You are disgrace to this forumn making the rest of us look weak and driving some of us to consider larceny to support our habit and expand our collections. Now, Mister, you just turn around and got back there and buy, buy, buy. We are all praying that you come to ur senses. LOL Beautiful photos. Hope he is around when i am there in Jan. I will definately make up for your lack of weakness. Private me where in Florida this is? Thanks.
