    Kelp / Seaweed Additives

    Wow... I have been using it (Kelpak) at 1/4 tsp per gallon. I guess I really need to increase the dose? Funny, I thought my most of my new fat root growth was due to the Kelpak and not my or Ray's version of K-lite?

    FED EX!!!! (and UPS, USPS, etc etc)

    Personal experience - I have purchased almost my whole collection from distant sources. FEDEX has been by far the best delivery source. I have also found a great method for those that are able... have it delivered and held at a FEDEX office. It stays indoors and you pick it up when you wish. I...

    On my way to work...

    A few times a month I encountered this on the way to work. You would figure that they would not have built the road so low 100 years ago to require a kayak to make part of your journey, so something has to be happening. Norfolk, VA continues to make plans to deal with the increased tidal surge -...

    oyster shell

    Thanks for the info... TDS reading for the tap water is about 85 ppm TDS. I was planning on cutting my 15-5-15 fert in half and add Calcium Nitrate and MgSO4 as you mentioned in a post somewhere. I am cutting back on ferts now any way. What seaweed extract do you reccommend? I have tried a...

    oyster shell

    Thoughts about City of Norfolk, VA water quality? I do run it through an in-line packed carbon filter to remove chloramines. Mainly grow in an Orhiata based mix for pots and straight sphagnum for baskets and mounts - mainly Phals (shhhh...). I use 15-5-15 cal/mg at 100 ppm N and an occasional...

    Orchiata size recommendations

    Have tried 80/20 Orchiata/perlite and it seemed to work fine based on my growing conditions. Lately I have tried straight orchiata and things seem to be ok too. Give me another year to see how things progress.

    Fed Ex Strikes Again!!

    I have had stellar experiences with Fedex... But I have all of my packages held at the climate controlled office for pick up. Luckily I have a Fedex office .25 mile from my office.

    Help for yellowing leaves

    Is that any different than Calcium Nitrate? 15.5-0-0? I really do not know the definition of organic in this case...

    "dying" plants to get different flower color

    Saw a bunch at Lowes for $19.99... they appear to be hot sellers. They ain't my thing, but like a bunch of the "orchids" they sell in the mass market world - they sell fast, cheap and most get tossed when they wilt. If you want to call them "orchids" you can, I prefer to consider them to be...
