    Poor little Paph

    I plan on buying the large container from Amazon so I have a refill so more frequent applications will allow the Paph too continue. So far the plant is unwilling too let the two bottom leaves go. I am curious what a long term disinfectant would be called. I am looking at Safers Fungicide too...

    Poor little Paph

    If you click the first picture it’s possible too see the rot at the base of the last remaining fan. I am hoping the Hydrogen Proxide has haulted the advancement of this disease.

    Phrag. Fox Valley Fireball 'Baby Ball'

    Orchid growing is impossible I can grow these however with laws here in Canada we can't do this since we can not heat a greenhouse; even five wall greenhouses are way too expensive too heat.
