    Pros and Cons of Grodan rock wool mini cubes

    Not Pete here,:) but I’ve got a Coelogyne cristata var. grandiflora that is deliriously happy right now in a 50-50 mix of cubes and green tree moss that I gathered from a woods. AHHHH lucky you.... my luck with moss is limited (mainly top dressing or mounts)... and i've abandoned it as a...

    Pros and Cons of Grodan rock wool mini cubes

    As Paul mentioned above Glenn said he uses it in his kovachii to manage pH up a bit as they have been advertised to like... I've attempted to accomplish the same thing by just adding a butt load of chicken grit... appears to be working but i don't have a good experiment going to truly...

    Sanders Pride ‘Golden Boy’ AM/AOS x adductum ‘Nice Guy’

    I typically don't care for the sanderianum lip and skinny shoulders, but this cross seems to mitigate that nicely... I'd be a buyer.... :-) Sorry for this dumb question, but is the flower in picture P4 actually on the same plant as P1/P2/P3? It could just be the perspective from which it...

    Phragmipedium besseae flavum help please

    Since you've said 'RO' a few times in your replies, i'm assuming you mix your K-lite in RO as your base water. Have you measured the conductivity of the fertilizer solution you apply on your plants recently? The reason i ask is that I've noticed an increased sensitivity to salts as the...

    Paphiopedilum St. Swithin

    posting this as much to see the feedback as to offer alternatives.... For me, my detriment to future success always seems to be tied to the health of the center of the pot. Presented with what you have, i'd merely be looking from the bottom into the center for dead roots you can remove, while...
