    Certainly a winner! Never thought wardii could get that big.

    Ho Chi Minh

    Nice healthy plant! Nice bloom with great color and form. Let me know how long it last for you. I only get about 2 weeks with my HCMs before they get brown spots.

    Crushed oyster shell top dressing Paphs

    I found this on Amazon. https://www.amazon.ca/Express-Poultry-Oyster-Shell-Crushed/dp/B081HXZ8MM/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=oyster+shell&qid=1617856685&sprefix=oyster+shell&sr=8-3 Would this work? Does it need to be washed before use? Worried about salt content.

    Crushed oyster shell top dressing Paphs

    I would say approximately every 4th watering.I fertilize every watering and most of the time I use miracle gro 24-8-16 which is urea based. I used to use plant prod 25-10-10 which was urea based too and I loved it. Unfortunately they discounted it!

    I grow brachies decently and most say they need some sort of lime additive to the mix. I never do. I make sure to use calcium nitrate

    Paph thaianum, back from the dead!

    This is interesting! Im one of those people that has some luck growing brachys in plastic pots with fir bark. I even have some in straight sphagnum moss. It must be my dry condo environment. pS: I have zero luck with orchiata. Be it with Phals, catts or paphs.

    K-lite

    I bought k-lite back in 2012 and ground it up to a powder right after I received it. I have not used it in at least 5 years and I am thinking of giving it another try. Checked it and it’s completely dry. Is it still ok to use? Do fertilizers expire at some point? Thanks!
