My Phalaenopsis Kolibri was wilting quite dramatically but with an extra misting a day (I mist my orchids every day instead of watering under the tap once a week) and having been moved to my pinguicula shelf its leaves have perked up beautifully and it has grown a new, thick root! I can't wait to see if it flowers for me again.

My other orchid which is a dyed royal blue (I didn't know it was dyed or I wouldn't have asked for it for my birthday) is currently about to bloom :) The stalk is MASSIVE! I can't begin to describe how excited I was when I saw the plant was flowering!

They're definately worth looking into!
What light source do you use for your plants.
