growing noid phal

A healthy noid phalaenopsis

     It's almost hard to imagine that a year ago, this little phal noid was clinging to survival, with only 2 good roots and ever diminishing leaf size.  Now, this phal is a picture of good orchid health.  It's grown 7 new roots since spring.  The new leaf maxed out at a respectable 5.5 inches (still shorter than the old long leaf on the right), and the orchid immediately started growing another leaf.

     I have the phal growing on my top shelf, very close to the lights.  However, unlike my Phal M.A.M (name too long to write out in its entirety), this noid has not produced any leaf color change in response to the high light.
