    Dividing a plant 3 years overdue

    When I saw the root pic I thought ‘good luck’ :D but saw you did get it apart. My eyes would have glazed over after an hour of peering and pulling!

    The 'water twice' approach to watering

    If your plants are over dry, and you are going to feed with something really strong, it may be better to hydrate to a better level and then at some point give a feed. Also if you are a heavy feeder and you let your plants get really dry (like cattleyas possibly) then you can get built up dried...

    Phragmipedium kovachii

    :) if you had a really (really) deep windowsill, I’m sure that with warm weather and your normal air conditioning in the Carolinas, it would be okay. It seems to be being over 80 gives it problems. And if you use a outer clay pot and some air movement indoors it would be fine I’m not sure I...

    While I'm flattered...

    It is odd! I don’t see it anywhere using safari or chrome (on phone) but if you do a google search for slippertalk, in the results there is a red sophronitis to the left of the address.

    My Wife Calls this my ‘Man Cave’

    :) many years ago in my apt I got carried away with humidifying and the couch and chair my landlord had given me started molding So a good sign that the plants will like the humidity, will be your couch getting fuzzy :D

    Brassavola nodosa, nodosa var grandiflora, brassavola grandiflora?

    There is some question about what’s the right name for this orchid? It was sold as Brassavola nodosa ‘Mas Mejor’ AM/AOS. Many plants sold as nodosa have pencil-like cylindrical leaves. There are pictures of orchids with the name nodosa ‘mas mejor’ on the internet and I’ve seen the same name used...
