    Default It's official, I'm hooked

    Well I swung by the store for supplies the other day and saw this. I thought to myself "self, that would look really nice next to your other phal !! ". So now i have two !! I put it on the window-sill for the photo but i took it down again after as my other one got Bud Blast !! I suspected too much light so now they are ca. two metres from the window sill.. don't they make a nice couple !?!?
    P.S. should I trim the roots when re-potting?, they are everywhere!! and in circles!!
    :o)

    Cheers,

    What a pretty pair. I'm not suprised, one of yours looks like a Kaleidoscope (phal), it's been known to hypnotize unsuspecting newbies everywhere. lol I have one myself. All good roots should be kept when repotting....only cut the sickly brown, rotted ones. By the way... Nice view out the window.
