    Cool Phal. Doritis Pulcherrina in boom

    I have several Phalaenopsis Doritis Pulcherrina plants, they are very easy to grow in the tropics and multiply like mad with good sun and water. This one however, I cherish beyond the others because of it's much intenser colours than the usual ones found here. The purple tone and especially the reds are unique to this one plant...
    Enjoy!

    Cheers, Michael

    That's beautiful bloom. I am jealous!

    I bought one maybe 8 years ago in bloom. It hasn't bloomed since, but I got (and killed) lots of keikis over 8 years. I am ready to toss them (I have 2 pots now) to trash, but...
