Hello everyone. Back in December I stopped at some greenhouse to look around and came across this little guy. He was dying and the people working there planned to trow it out in the trash. I felt bad for it so I took this poor little plant off their hands. To top it off it had spider mites. I soon took care of them :evil:. I think it's a type of Phalaenopsis but hey I could be wrong. I'm really into Paphiopedilum over anything else and he is probably the only none paph orchid I will own. Anyways I've been keeping him in my room to keep an eye on it and this was my surprise. I guess he is happy! I've been wondering what color he would be if he lived :D
