Ahrrr you got the colour this time its a stunner and you chose the right one too these never let you down with flowering freqently like the others, as long as feed water and spray don't forget don't leave any water at the bottom least it will kill it.

24 Jan, 2011

 

Wow, I do like that,

24 Jan, 2011

90 per cent meanie ~ have i got a week of flowering left or longer do you think?

24 Jan, 2011

 

I meant that the photo is probably 90 degrees out......
It probably has weeks left in it!

yes you are right meanie ~ its very confusing cos the flowers are growing at all angles.
its only when you said that i noticed the ties on the stalks!

Thats beautiful Sticki. I have one like that, but it hasnt so many flowers as yours.

28 Jan, 2011

 

think i was very lucky - never seen one with so many flowers for the amount i paid! think it might have been a mistake!!

28 Jan, 2011

 

Maybe, usually the more stems the more expensive

28 Jan, 2011

 

thats what i thought.
normally about 9 - 10 pounds for 2 stems?

another lovely phal i love moth orchids.

28 Jan, 2011

 

why are they called moth orchids? - is it the shape of the flower being like moth wings?

29 Jan, 2011

 

Yes they look like a large moth in flight also named after a large moth group phala i think n/opsis is like so "moth like " orchids are my one true plant love i used to grow loads when i was younger.

didnt know all that ~ thanks surreylad. ive only had one or two as presents and they havent lasted too long. dont think i have ever bought one myself before ~ mainly cos i dont want to spend lots of money and then lose the plant.

30 Jan, 2011

31 Jan, 2011

 

ok, thank you

Oh what a real beauty Sticki. My sis in law very successful in growing these but I dont have a good track record for indoor plants. I wish you luck. I know they last for months cos whenever I visit its always in flower (she keeps it in the downstairs loo in the window and of course I visit the room every time we go lol!) Great bargains are the best!

31 Jan, 2011

 

not much room in the loo - im hoping it will be ok in new lounge??????

31 Jan, 2011

 

Not a window with much sunshine!
