    Though I don't keep them in the house but rather in the greenhouse I thought I'd post a few photos. I've got 24 full sized Phals and 6 minis. About 18 or so of these I've had about 2yrs now. One has put out two keikis and is in the process of putting out two more. Others have quite a few basal keikis. Now that the weather has cooled quite a few are starting to put out spikes.

    A little bit of information Kay. I buy mine at Walmart but only after they've finished flowering. At that time I start bugging them about how bad they look and how they need a better home. I usually get them for about $5.00/ea or sometimes maybe less. I think they gave me the minis for $2.00 last year.

    @chris1948 - you're buying them at WalMart AFTER they've flowered? And they re-flower for you? Am impressed! :)

    Do you know at all what colour flower you will get? or what type them are? Anyway of telling that from the leaves?

    That's correct, and yes they do. I feed and water them weekly and mist at least once daily with Ultra Clean fertilizer and Epson Salts. I had a few of them marked with the color but the marker wore off the plastic tags I made. I need to make some more permanent labels. They're all Phals 24 are full size and 6 are mini Phals.

    I've had mine for 4 yrs. It has re bloomed several times. I think it wants to show off for all the other plants in the sunroom LOL

    Mine just seem to race each other to see who can bloom first. Those spikes in the photos are from last blooming however they never died off and are putting out more buds.
