Hello from CO Male
Default Hello from CO

Hello! Relatively new orchid hobbyist. Previous to moving to Denver, CO I focused on CPs. Had them growing everywhere outside. Had a few orchids too. Nothing crazy. Moved to CO. Every CP died...so I started focusing on orchids. Have 60+ unique species and hybrids. Biggest problems I have are root rot from degrading medium leading to water retention longer than I anticipated. Newly potted plants do fine but take a while to re-root.

Thanks for having me!

For my tropical conditions - I grow along the lines shown in the attached image. Root rot can be pretty much eliminated in that way. Works well in the tropics here.

Welcome to the group.

KelpMax will definitely help with the root growth (it’s on sale until midnight tonight, too.)
