    Actually, this lovely thing finished blooming and i've since fought to keep it alive after I burned it. It has a new leaf with purple on the back. It is one of the few phals here that the heat doesnt seem to bother, when its not on the "high sun" shelves. Its in a metal wire basket and its slowly adapting. It didnt like clay or plastic pots so I tried this. It's been here since January and as its still alive, i'm hoping it'll make it.
