    paph helenae + thaianum help?

    i am also a fan of the azamax... know that if you treat with the banrot and soap mixture, that is one mode of attack on the mites as well (the soap).... use either as soon as soon as you get them... I've done both drench and spray with the azamax as some mites like living in the mix...

    Wanted Who’s ordering from Sam’s flask sale?

    Ditto to that if you can afford the space at least wardii isn't kolopokingii... :) growing out a hundred or so of a grex puts you into a great situation.... hate that OZ went south... it was awesome to go there and see a couple hundred of a grex to pick through.... kinda ruins you...

    Some pictures

    very nice indeed.... we grow a lot of the same things ... your vanda root system(s) imply (to me) that your humidity concerns are not really an issue... i've had to start moving my vandas into clay pots (no medium, just the pot) to keep the roots healthy... mine were also just growing...

    Creeping Phragmipedium schlimii

    sounds like at least David had come to that same conclusion... :-) necessity is the mother of invention... after watching the moss rot away for years and in some cases the moss drying out to fast... i started down that road...

    Creeping Phragmipedium schlimii

    :-) when i typed all that out, i thought 'ya know a picture would be helpful here...' but laziness ensued... anyhoo... here are a few examples... you'll see that i not only use the solo cups (typically for small jumpers i don;t want to repot yet) but also inverted plastic pots i've...

    Creeping Phragmipedium schlimii

    as a practice, i've started creating 'micro pot' extensions for these jumping scenarios when i don't yet want to repot the new growth back into the main part of the mix... after trying a lot of different scenarios - started with the sphagnum like you mentioned, went to a different wrappers on...

    Couple of Phrags

    thanx all for the feedback... the plant is small and is a jumper... the thing is this year it has a branch on the spike that is throwing it's second flower... we'll see how it progresses as i get the recent growth tucked back into the pot... (the inflorescence on the right, in the...
