    Smile Phalaenopsis Marianne

    Here are a few pics of some new plants I got back in August...maybe September. I don't believe I've posted these yet...

    When I bought it, it had only like 3 open buds. It went crazy when I brought it home. When all the flowers had opened I thought it was done, but then it started developing NEW buds at the ends. I have been using PURE reverse osmosis water with 1 drop of SuperThrive and a tsp of fertilizer on ALL my plants and the results are AMAZING! They LOVE LOVE LOVE pure RO water. I always buy it now.

    Also, the newer flowers are MORE VIBRANT than the ones before them. Does anyone know how/why this happens? I'm not complaining...it looks awesome, but I want the other ones to do it too LOL.

    Lovely color . It is not unusual for flowers to fade as they age. Also, if cultural changes are made-temperature, light, feeding- the color can change.

    Thanks everyone.

    Thanks OrchidLady for the info on cultural changes. I have this PLUS 12 other plants on a little cart on the South window. It receives plenty of morning sun. These plants really love it here lol.
