    You know I probably looked like a nut in Lowe's. First, I went through and picked the ones that looked like they had a chance. These three guys had the best looking PB's. Then I dug all of the sphag moss out to get to the bark and looked at the roots (I just threw all the moss away). I was happy how good the roots looked. I brought 'em home and sprayed them with funicide (sorry, can't spell) and I'm going to repot today. I need to soak some bark.

    You know, as I child I brought home stray animals. Now I bring home stray orchids!

    I've done that, and at times I have had to go through 10 pots to find one with good roots!
