Phal. Sogo Yukidian ‘V3’

This plant has had a new spike, and survived some root rot this year.  I think things are on the upswing for her now. 2016 jun 6  
Picked up this 3.5′ tall beauty today at Lowe’s.

I had to repot the last 3 orchids I purchased there immediately, during bloom, due to root rot. This was the worst! Inside that pink plastic wrapper was a stagnant pool of water. One day I’ll learn to resist a beautiful flower. 

I potted it in Leca and black cinder.  We’ll see how that goes.  Fingers crossed.
