    Cymbidium goeringii "Mangetsu" 日本春蘭「満月」-plucking flower buds.

    Perhaps you can share the recipe on here for others growing in Europe as well?

    TBH, I can't imagine growing plants of any kind without using a liquid seaweed amendment.I think I first used it around 1975, because the 2 young guys producing it in a small lab talked me into trying it. I had 15k orchids in a 30' x 50' commercial glasshouse. After a couple of months using it I...

    Hello from Holland

    Welcome from Alicante Spain. I was in Holland the past 2 years, but my orchids demanded a change of climate, so here I am. And not at all unhappy I listened to their appeal :)

    Certainly felt that way at the time, and looking back from now, no regrets in following that path!

    Cattleya...First love.

    For me, it was seeing a picture of Phrag pearcei in the 1970s. A few days after, I had a vivid dream where a giant pearcei blossom was hovering over my shoulder and following me around, while a deep voice kept intoning the Latin name. I kid you not. I became obsessed, tracked it down to J and L...

    Seems to be mostly on the pieces of charcoal?

    Hi everybody!

    I think maybe fondness follows after understanding and familiarity, no? I see lots of orchids on windowsills in my region, but most are phalenopsis purchased at the supermarket.

    Greetings From Concord, MA

    My orchids and I lived there for a few years loooooong ago. I'd forgotten the notable zip code.

    Paph druryi

    Home, east window, receiving good morning light. That was 'then', in NW Europe. Recently moved to the Mediterranean region of Spain (Alicante), and so far it's outdoors under shade cloth, SW exposure. Still looking strong and happy.

    Paph druryi

    I had a seedling I could well have named "Cheshire Cat" for its steady shrinkage towards some uncertain vanishing point. I re-potted into pure basalt chips (also known as 'trap rock'). Seemed to like that. It's heading the other way now, gaining size, the leaves are very strong and it has a...

    Tetraploid phrag seedlings

    I just bought some from Amazon in the Netherlands, but it's packaged in China and while allegedly NZ moss, we'll see what actually arrives. As it's dried, it could be old stock though.
