    Default My Newly Acquired Phal

    I was so happy to receive this phal as my birthday gift. I never had any phal of this size !! I am sure the plant is at least 3-4 years old. The pot it came with was full of healthy green roots and I had to trim some roots came out from the bottom.

    I always get orchids on my birthday.....although I tend to buy them for myself. Actually, every other day has turned out to be my "birthday" lately (HEE,HEE). Sad thing is I spent over $100 on orchids for gifts for Christmas and ended up keeping most of them (oops).
