At least my Phals still bloom here.

I love them even though they're very common here.

Mine is about to bloom, also.

You'll figure it out eventually Meanie. The first year I had my Cymbidium it didn't bloom. It got moved around for a year until I found a spot it liked....I get a great show now. I decided I'm buying another one this year!

I love them too Delonix even though they are common. I have five, I think that's enough of Phals.

I have a cattleya that just won't bloom!

Alexandramou:

I like that Phals and Cattleyas are very hardy outside, here. My Cattleyas died last year from very dry conditions. Last winter was very hot and dry (hottest on record)...and this winter is actually on it's way to being even hotter. We've had 3 day with temps up to 92ºF (33ºC) in the last week. It's been consistently 80ºF (27ºC) for several weeks. The only cool/cold weather we had was the first four days of January.
