So I guess I'll just jump in. I just found this forum last night while checking the hours for the Oak Hill Gardens. They are literally around the corner from me I was hoping to visit today but they are closed.
So I have 2 orchids right now, I have had various phals in the past with not too much luck. Neither of my orchids (1 phal and 1 dendrobium) had bloomed since I purchased it. I'm thinking I need to repot?? The other day I decided to set them out on my deck. The phal has now gotten a new leaf. The dendrobium has many leaves but I don't see any difference yet. I have them sitting on my railing so they get some morning sun. The last two nights it has rained so I have empited the pots of the water that was in them.
Well that's all I have right now I look forward to meeting you all and learning lots. Thanks!
Hi Leslie, Great to have you join us. I live down the road in Rockford so I have purchased a ton of orchids from Oak Hill. They are good to work with and will help if you have any problems. It's amazing that two orchids can turn into hundreds.
Thanks so much for the great welcome. Yes I live in the Subdivision right next to them. We are in their backyard I guess you would say. Well you know the saying about potato chips, well I made a trip to Hausermans. So I'm going to post about my purchases in the beginner forum. Thanks again everyone!
Welcome to OB! You will have so much fun on here learning and drooling over pics! Well I do anyway! That is so cool that you live so close to Oak Hill. I would be in a lot of trouble too. Think how much I would save on shipping! Anyway, have fun looking around on here and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
