    Hi all.

    My name is Muddassar and I currently live in Toronto. I am very new to Orchids. it all stated with seeing Phals plants in multiple supermarkets here and then i read more to find out a huge list of natural/man made orchids.

    i wished to have an orchid collection of my Own but due to the travelling nature of my job and between multiple houses i could not setup anything. I am just trying out with one (yep, just one) Phal Orchid plant that I picked from the local supermarket last year. I could buy another one with flowers again but I am just trying to get things right with the one to make it flower again. Hopefully when i move back to Bangalore i'll have a more decent collection and put some learning from my current experience and through this Forum.

    With just 1 plant in my collection:)I won;t be posting more actively as of now but once i get settled back at home, I will. I hope to learn a lot in this forum over the next few months/year.

    (I also am an aquarium hobbyist with one pretty nicely maintained planted aquarium).

    Finally it flowered. Sent out 2 healthy spikes with one spike already flowering (3 flowers so far).

    Next Spring I'll start with few more. please Suggest me some varieties for a north west facing window (other than Phals).
