    Orchid scheme nipped in bud

    My first attempt at making a bed

    Oh wow! I knew cooking meth was really bad, I did not know it was so bad that you as a neighbor even suffered THAT much!!! I am so sorry you had to go through that, but I am also very happy for you that they are gone and it sounds like you are healing! Margit

    Paph. fowliei culture

    I live in the Pacific Northwest. I am growing under lights. Spare bedroom, heavy duty shelving unit with two growing levels. At the moment I am using only my HO t5's (4- 4 footers).

    Paph. fowliei culture

    Thank you so much SlipperFan! That is exactly what I hoped for! I think one of the things that has me confused about this little plant is, that I bought it in VERY open media.

    Paph. fowliei culture

    Thank you for all the information Chicago Chad! That is exactly what I am looking for! One of the things I am trying to decide is, if the current media it is in, is actually suited for my growing area conditions. It is in a VERY open media that might be better suited for my terrarium.

    They look absolutely beautiful! When a flask is purchased, what kind of a survival rate (percentage?) can an experienced grower have? Just curious. Margit

    Paph. fowliei culture

    Hello fellow orchid enthusiasts! At the beginning of the year I purchased a beautiful little Paph. fowliei v. alba. So far, it looks like it has been doing well. After it finished blooming, it got busy on a second growth, which has now 5 leafs and a 6th one on the way. I think it is looking...
