2nd attempt at not killing a Phal Orchid
Default 2nd attempt at not killing a Phal Orchid

Because my first attempt ended in failure. I will try my utmost not to kill this one! I think i learned a lot from the mistakes i made first time round. Plus, this one is way healthier from the offset.

I bought my first one online and its roots were far from perfect when it arrived.

I spent ages looking at those on offer at the garden centre and eventually settled on this one pictured. What do you guys think - looks nice and healthy, right?

Very Pretty colour(s) !!
The most important is to watch the roots and don't let them rot! (only water when they are 'white') & If you are not sure better to wait a couple of days than to overwater in my experience..
Good Luck!!
