Hello from Alberta
Smile Hello from Alberta

Hi, Iíve been reading the OB for about 5 years and finally decided to join the gang.
I bought a discounted white phal from BigēW when I lived in Brisbane Australia. I cut off all of the blooms from her and made a wrist corsage and a boutonniŤre for my sonís formal (high school grad party). Then I learned that that I might be able to make the plant bloom again if Iím lucky. Thatís how I started my orchid life. I had about 20 orchids (mostly Phals) all in FWC, all bloomed periodically and no a single plant died on me there. I know itís not a very common way to grow orchids but thatís the only way I know how.

Now Iím in Canada trying to grow my new orchids in the same way as I used to down there but some plants are not thriving in FWC. Little by little Iím learning how to grow orchids in regular way in media. Looking forward to learn much from all of you

Welcome to the Board Bribie! Glad you decided to join in. Yes, a transition from growing in Australia to growing in Canada will require a whole new learning curve.

If you grow mostly Phals, I would imagine the first think you'd want to do is assure they're staying warm enough. I don't grow anything in water culture, so can't be of help on that part, but warmth is key in semi-hydro for them, so you might start there.

Welcome to the board, Bribie. That's quite a move to make, from Australia to Canada!
