Default Whether tis NOBILEr in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows...

... of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles, and, by opposing, end them.


i lost 9 BIG Nobile hybrid plants to the bleach bath BUT...i had a notion last year that i should take some of the MANY keikis and seed then around my yard.

blessed premonition i suppose.

i have a few labels on some of these but mostly they are a testament to "dont put all your eggs in one basket" and "DC has to do VERY little to make most of these orchids happy"

hey DC can you elaborate what your bleach bath involved? Why did you try it on 9 nobiles?
I've seen a 10% bleach bath recommended in the past to kill all pests but is that what you did and it killed them? Would be good to know what not to do.
Thanks

I was being tongue in cheek

sorry

it was not intentional but a total massacre by a shameless and incompetent servicer provider

pressure cleaning chemicals and plants

i dont recommend bleach for anything other than the whites

They all look like they're doing very well for you. And I imagine that they will thrive outdoors in your location. Perhaps they will even enjoy hearing you recite Hamlet's famous soliloquy to them--although this also might be a good way to get the neighbors to avoid you, depending on your rendition.

Looking at your Dens is... perchance to dream.
