I purchased this Phalaenopsis orchid about five or six years ago in a clearance box at Walmart. It was pathetic looking but it was only 0.50 cents (U.S) so I thought...let's see what happens. The poor thing has

been through a lot...including getting knocked over multiple times by my cat and getting partially eaten by my dog. Then by some miracle, I got surprised by a flower this morning! It's the first flower I've ever seen it produce which makes it extra special. Anyway, just wanted to show off

Welcome to the Forum. I'm not sure I would have the patience to have kept it that long waiting for it to flower! It is always good to get that first flower though so congratulations.
Now I hope you don't mind me asking but some of your information seems a bit odd. You say you bought the plant in Walmart but you live in Australia (I didn't know Walmart was in Oz) but give the price in $ U.S. You also say that your hardiness zone is China, why would you say that?

Call me suspicious but is it because this Poster and the previous Topic from AdamJohnson who also lives in Oz and also a Hardiness Zone of China are one and the same person because BOTH also seem more interested in attaching links to their Posts???

Hi Steve, my original thought was that this was a spam thread but it is always difficult to actually call someone a liar particularly when there is the possibility that they could be a genuine new member.

I got as close as I could without being offensive (I hope)!
