    Smile From "sicko" phal to "killer" phal

    I'm a sucker for a sicko....especially the phals. If you mark them down or give them to me I'll kill myself trying. I thought, for some of the newer phal lovers, I'd show you a few of my almost dead rescues. Please don't think I'm boasting, for each one I was able to save, another three or four croaked in a very grotesque manner. You'll find that some live, alot die, and that the ones that live belong at your home.
    Below are three that started out badly with rotted roots, snail problems, spider mite infestations...you name it, these three are survivors for sure. As I moved them outside I had to measure them. The Brother Laurence is over a year old now. Big Yellow has been here for about a year as well. Noid#6 was the worst case and I've had it for about 8 months.
    The first two pictures are of Brother Laurance, below Brother is Noid #6
    The last two pictures are of Big Yellow and it's KeiKei....can't wait for that little guy to get bigger so I can pot it up.

    Yeah, I keep telling them that. I'm not sure they are listening. Brother Laurence threw a spike awhile back and then stopped...I'm not sure that's good. lol

    That's neat, Connie. I'm sure they'll reward you for saving their lives. You're a good 'chid momma.
