Since the local garden center today only had about 15 Phals all being the same color we did not come home with one. Sigh ... While looking online at orchid places I found an orchid for $500.00. I thought it was a mistake because the others were only $50 but after reading the description I understood better. I copied the name here. It's gorgeous! Has a deep purple and white flower.
Phal. FANGtastic Green Envy 'Judy Su'

Okay I have now added "eat my dust" to the Wish List! Oh my is that ever pretty. See I got bitten by this Orchid thing and now I'm getting out of control ! That one has to come with the winning lottery ticket. The flowers look perfect on it. But now I have another website to look at too now! Thanks!
I still have to get my plants through the dull sunless winter days here in Ohio. I have to find some kind of simple inexpensive light for them.
I was gonna comment on here earlier, but I forgot to. Honestly, I have NO clue whatsoever why this plant is so pricey!! First of all, you could probably make better versions of this using better harlequin parents, and secondly, this plant would be a triploid, meaning its pretty worthless in the breeding scene, as triploids rarely breed.
