    Default No name mini sunset phal.

    This was a "save" from a big box store for $1 and it was amazingly healthy so I took it home.
    This year, it decided to bloom from an old spike. It turned out special!
    Enjoy!

    Thanks everyone and Hank for the "possible" name for my orchid!
    I guess the people in the big box stores did not know what is a 'spike' and 'root', so it was on the sale rack!

    I don't think a lot of those folks in those stores know much about ANY of the plants they are in charge of. They just go around and dump water on stuff once in a while and call it good! Nice rescue.....can't be $1

    I know, once I saw a person spray water on the orchids!
    I bet the phallies did not like water in their "crowns"...
