    Default noid purple Doritaenopsis

    ok, they were only 6$ in 2 inch clay pots. definate rescues from my local home improvement place... i don't think they ever water these at all, they were very dry and are going to lose a leaf or 2 each, but will survive. and at 6$ i got 2, just in case. they have a light fruity scent in bright light. i think a cross with some Phal violacea??
