My plans are to repot in seedling bark mix (it was soaked overnight in water and superthrive). Will it hurt the charlesworthii to repot while in bud? Also, the medium it is in appears to be a little bigger than the seedling bark mix. Will it hurt to plant them both in seedling bark mix? I have a paph Luther Pass with 7 divisions on it that is doing well in seedling bark mix.
Kim mentioned that he has repotted his paphs without fear of setback close to their blooming season. I'm just wondoring about repotting one while in spike.
Can someone please give me their
worth on this? Thanks for any info!
Guys I'm having trouble posting pics of these, I keep getting a message that says 'no security token'. I will try to post these once this issue is resolved...sorry
for the pictures, i get that message often. its usually because my pictures are too big. so i just use photoshop to resize them. then they should upload fine.
You can call me Bob ;)
Some say epiphytic orchids are parasite, for living on trees.. However, I say that orchids are parasites for luring us humans to take them into our homes to feed and care for them. Much more care than they would get in the wild....
