Hi guys, now this is not a complain but a sigh of relief. I had this phal wich bloomed for over 18 months stright I had to remove the spike for it to rest. It was in spag when I got it and by yhe time I repotted it only three roots we're left. I repotted in a bark mix in november of last year not wanting to wait any longer well its now the begining of february and this orchid has put out over twenty new roots I am amazed at it. Goes to show when an orchid want to live it put out everything. I just wanted to shere my joy with my family here. We mostly post pic with sick or dying orchid seeking advise as to how to treat a wide range of issues. Well just thought I would post a few pic of a big sucess. And of an orchid which decided your not getting rid of me that easily. :). This pic is of the entire plant lots of long nice leaves. I will post two others so you can see both the back and front of the plant. Roots everywhere. Enjoy. VELLETA.

And this is the frt or other side. It also has maybe about six to seven branching off frm the first three root that it was left with when I repotted it. Velleta.

Velleta, this is awesome :) I've got one that is growing about 15 new roots, a new leaf, and two spikes (the last time it bloomed was last winter, and that was straight from the grower--with just one spike). Some of them are really troopers!

Thanks shavedmonkey, remember I told you in another tread that we only get superthrive here in Jamaica well I use it with 20-20-20 every other watering. Oh and I prayed a lot too 😊 that's it. But I honestly do that with all my other orchids, so I guess this one really wants to stick around 😊. Velleta
