    Default Phal. pulchra 'TH'

    Most of you know I don't do well with Phals and especially species. Since I've mounted them I seem to be doing better. This is a first bloom for me with this plant. I lost a few buds to thrips which was disappointing. I did a little happy dance when I went out to check the damage from the weather this afternoon and found a bloom.

    It is always wonderful to find an orchid blooming that hasn't done well or hasn't bloomed before. A great surprise and gift!!

    cheers,

    ...a few more blooms. I'm feeling slightly more confident They are rooting into the fern totems and generally doing pretty well. I have quite a few seedling species I got from Eric and they have just about doubled in size.
