Oh, wonderful! I didn’t catch that the “no blooms” was just about the rehabbed ones. Glad you’re having success with them! Phals are my favorite.

I have been keeping them in pots (unpotting and refrigerating for 8 weeks, then repotting), but may stick them in the ground now as I can't get them to bloom.
Very healthy plants, but no blooms.
I'm just concerned about the not-quite-occasional below freezing nights we've been having this past winter. I'd hate to kill them after all this work.
Thanks for responding! =)

Welcome to Orchidboard!!!

Let me know if you ever need to change your username to 60ByAccident, or 600ByAccident. Because that happens to most of us a couple months/years further into the addiction!

Just bury the necks so they're below the freezing zone. They're hardy almost to zone 7 with mulch. You don't need to mulch. You will lose leaves in freezes but they'll grow back.
