Post Mothers Day score!

Just happened to notice this phal in Big W today with a broken spike so i asked the sales girl if she could discount it from $27... got it for $10!!

At least i know what colour it will be cause the broken blooms were still in there

So keep an eye out for post mothers day bargains!







cheers

hey man, i haven't seen you around for ages, how have you been?

that is a MASSIVE plant you got there, i'm very jealous... though it's such a pity that they are never named oh well

also i'd never thought of asking them to discount it..... i'll have to keep an eye out from now on ..... i wonder if you could snap the spike then say that you didn't.....

Just an update on this orchid.

It sent out a spike off the old spike and has produced 3 flowers.

Oddly, only one of the flowers has opened fully. the other 2 are only half open.

they have all been open for about a week now. no sudden relocations or changes of temp that would cause them to blast. other phals in same location opening normally

here are some pics









Cheers
Matt
