ok I found a bottle or superthrive at a lowes and according to this I mix a bit w/ my fertilizer but due to the very porous nature of the medium should I mix the fert. and Sthrive up in a bowl and set my plant in it for a bit or no (if yes about how long..like 10 or 15 min??)
and trust me "roots are good" is not the only thing ive been chanting lately

I figure the purpose of a title is to get someone’s attention and if it didn’t get your guys attention then at lease it would warn other Phals to run.

Where are you located? Do you grow indoors or outdoors?
If you have any questions, feel free to ask
My location is Jacksonville FL, Im growing indoors on an east facing window, and my complete list of orchid is as follows: one and only one Phal
I didnt and dont want to know what color it is so i didnt ask, i also removed the id tag before i saw what color was on it.
i like suprises.
This is my first orchid and due to current living arrangements I am maxed out on plant space hopefully in the near future that will change and ill have more room for more plants and more orchids...my ultimate desire is to raise an orchid from seed, more specifically a Paphiopedilum Maudiae
For the record....this is not my plant this is only what i want to rais some day.
so ive been doing tons and tons of reading regarding tube vials and glove boxes so that im better prepared when the time comes
and allow me to quote myself here for a min
