    The orchid that I purchased a few weeks ago is doing great. It is a bit slow, though. Is this normal? It is a phaleanopsis.(sp?)

    Hi Wesley

    When you say "a bit slow" do you mean in growth? If so, yes orchids are slow growers. That is why orchids aren't cheap. Takes years to get a mature plant. Its not like a lot of plants where you just pop some seeds into the ground and in a few weeks you get a plant. Its a long process from TC to mature.

    But I'm glad its doing well. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
