    What happened to my orchid post? Looks like somebody deleted it. Was it because of the stupid Tuyen poll somebody put up? Anyways, just wanted to show off my new Phal.

    Its an alba? I thought it was just a regular phal. Love cp's, but can't get over how beautiful the flower structure is on phals. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Ya the ones with almost pure white flowers like that are called, alba. There are a coulpe other things like that. Like candy stripes ( I think thats what its called) were they put pink stripes on the flowers. Some them look really nice. Next you should buy a Vanda.....

    Congrats on the new phal, Larry. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I can't see the pic though. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Phals are nice orchids with lots of beautiful flower types. And not hard to grow. You should have blooms for a couple of months...depending on how long its been in bloom before you got it.

    I think you should try a paphiopedilum...the ladyslipper type orchids are just beautiful. Well, all orchids are beautiful but they are one of my personal favorites.

    That is the exact same kind of orchid I bought for discount because it was mediumless, and had no flowers, and only had two leaves, and a dead one. Its alive, and it reflowered for me...

    Thats so cool... Does anyone know the species name?

    Are those carnivorous?
    \"The plant grew. It\'s resoruces were taken away. He was forced to evolve. He struggled and pushed and grew, until finally one day it sprouted a trap. A bug landed in, he was a little to noisy and got himself locked in. The plant now had resoruces, and he grew happy as a VFT for years.\"
