    Whatever you decide on, make sure it's something easy in her situation. Nothing like giving a person a gift that depends on their care and then dies. X\

    1. East/west window light (morning OR afternoon sun, NEVER full day of direct sun)

    2. Repot when done flowering in a bark mix that has been soaked 24 hours with a drop of dish soap

    3. Pot according to root mass size and not plant size.

    4. Cut spike back to where the first flower bloomed. It may spike again and bloom more.

    5. Water at half strength with a fertilizer that has no urea as the nitrogen.

    6. Fertilize weekly, weakly. 3 weeks on, 1 week with fresh clear water w/ no fertilizer.

    7. When in doubt, DO NOT WATER! You will never kill an orchid w/ neglect! Only with too much love!

    8. To rebloom Phals, they need a chill in the fall.

    9. If it doesn't rebloom it's either a light/fertilizer issue.

    Hope this helps! Good luck

    Seeing the similarity to oneself, one should not use violence or have it used.
