    I just could not resist the monstorous 5 inch bloom! A nice cheery yellow and some lovely little ones (really puny flowers next to gigantor!). All are NOID, but there here, that makes them family, and they are loved even nameless.

    And some new NOID purple rescues as well. Rescued from certain death in nice ceramic pots with no drain holes anyway. (Yes I'm spoiled, I know)

    They were all in plastic pots inside ceramic ones. Easy to pull out, send the pots out to the garage to get a drain hole drilled, then put back in without the plastic. Three already had root rot to trim off.

    How big do phal flowers regularily get? Whats the largest one ever recorded?
