    Mabuhay!

    If both will survive your environment.....go and get both plants. You deserve it. You owe to yourself as a gardener or orchid collector. And the "metal rabbit" says it will bring you good fortune years to come if you get both. hehehehe

    Happy New Year.

    Hey, I'm a coerulea freak. When given a choice, I go for the coeruleas. You can hardly go wrong with Kenneth Schubert, but a well-grown Indigo Dawn is spectacular. Fragrance and everything.

    I didn't vote but if I had I would have voted for the fragrant phal too.

    In fact, I have my first fragrant phal on order. Due in the end of February.
