The great trek outdoors.... Male
Default The great trek outdoors....

The weather is holding at around 53f minimum so out everyone goes. They love it, I love ....watering with a hose, easy fertilizing and insect spraying. I give each plant, depending on size, a teaspoon of bone meal, a teaspoon of blood meal and a few osmocote extended release fertilizer granules. That may be too much but I have never heard any complaints.

I don't have that one but its paphs, catasetum, cymbidium, dens, phrags, ancistrochilus, habenaria and a couple of others.

I see that habenaria medusa has similar leaf growth to the spectabilis..
