    Default New spike on my Phal 2/8/13

    Saturday 2/8/13
    Hi guys,
    3 months ago, a neighbor gave me this Phal. It was in bad-condition since she did not know how to care for it. I rescued it, repotted it. I did not use any fertilizers YET! :0 I couldn't believe that it's actually sending a spike. I am so happy right now. ))))) i will update more when it grows.
