Phals in bloom

I am so pleased with these phals. A friend traded them to me for a child's stroller. They had been given to her daughter by a boyfriend and the girl didn't want the guy or his plants. I've had to bring them inside several times in spike this winter due to near freezing temperatures and only broke one spike which promptly started growing again. Most of them are named varieties and some of them have more than one spike.

Yes he did. I told the mother that if I was 40 years older.......I'd still be too old.

Thanks Tricia,
I think the plant stand was from a curbside shopping trip.
A fellow that sells orchids locally told me to put them in sphagnum moss in a clay pot with a saucer of water and that seems to work her in SW Florida. I never had much success before because I didn't water them as frequently as they needs.
