    Here they are again! Just in time for Spring. "Blue Mystique" is a white phalaenopsis and is a result of a patented process that infuses a white orchid with a special medium. Keep your money, unless you do not care that future flowers will be white.

    I have to admit that they sure caught my eye when I first saw them at Home Depot.

    Scott - glad you brought this up.
    Dean - they caught my eye as well.

    Heard that they drench roots with a blue die that transfers to the flowers. Makes a nice gift, however most people end up killing their Phals they get as a gift. For those nuture them, they get a white flower on the next bloom.
