    Fungus gnats and no Gnatrol

    If you’ve used gnatrol before, then you’ve used biological controls already since they are beneficial nematodes. I did a simple google search, saw a result of ‘gnatrol home depot’ and saw a number of ways to find gnatrol. I also saw a number of home controls to control fungus gnats, including...

    Rockwool for pleurothallids

    A while back in upstate ny I had a media I used for phals and other things in my grow carts. It was i think 50% or more mini cubes, some charcoal, sponge rock and other things. I had fans inside the covered carts and I ended up losing a lot if plants because they dried out too hard. I had very...

    Habenaria carnea fma nivosa

    :) mine have survived south jersey windowsills and on top of radiators with styrofoam sheets between during winters with haphazard waterings. If they live for me then shouldn’t be too hard. But the aquarium setups should allow for the best conditions for them to multiply better

    :D yes there are healthy enablers here; seeing ‘everything’ you don’t have can lead to explosive collection numbers!

    Paph henryanum ‘Bear’ SM/TPS x self

    I think this was two years ago. Looking at the flower, I remember seeing it or a sib at an orchid show, in flower and my liking the fact that it has a relatively ‘normal’ pouch size. I don’t prefer the huge jaw pouches that many have...

    Longifolium fma album ‘fox valley mint’ x self

    I did find a small plant stake and remembered that I had a whole bag of spiedie skewers :) and I found a bag of long green floral wire that came in very handy. Although I did stake my hab medusae initially with a rusted off aquarium fish net handle

    Habenaria medusae x sib

    From Marlow orchids I’ve kept it alive through two winters and seasons, but can’t find the right moisture balance when it’s actively growing. Almost rotted the new growth having it too wet in an ebb/flood trough so took it out and then gets a bit too dry. But the buds are still forming so will...
