    Default Phalaenopsis a surprize, SMALL

    I bought a few Phallies late last year to see if I could grow or kill them. I also bought some flasks ( waste of money I thought ) Anyway, here are some pics that have me amazed.
    The first pic is of a Phallie I deflasked Nov' 20, 2010. I potted it into a 65mm pot from a 50mm pot today. 2nd & 3rd pics are of Phal. Sogo Vivien in a 60mm pot, 4th pic is of Ho's Little Caroline in a 60mm pot. I bought these as small plants in 50mm tubes at the same time I bought the flasks.

    Nice culture, Roy. I'm off phals for the moment - killed too many already.

    Thanks Yew, I though I would have a lot of empty pots by now. I'm not going to push my luck & get any more. I have about 50 the size of plant in 1st pic & 8 the size of the Sogo, 1 a little bigger & 45 Doritis ( Phal ) pulcherrima in 65mm pots.
    Definitely enough.!!!!!!!!!

    BD, I got the flask of pulcherrima for $40, plus post = $1.13 per plant. I knew I could grow these though. Might get a bit more than my money back when I sell them ??
