Bummer. I just went through mine and trashed a few of mine. I have now officially killed 4 Angraecum didieri. I just canít seem to keep those alive. First one was potted, second in a basket, third one I tried to mount, and #4 was purchased already established on a mount. I have no clue whatís going on but something about my culture clearly is not right. My other 4 angraecums are doing good for me

My favorite Bulbo, my Bulbophyllum fascinator semi-alba, got half eaten by a giant green caterpillar, developed an infection and died. I need to replace that one for sure. And I think my Stanhopea NOID is mostly dead. It wasnít in great shape to begin with when I got it on the raffle table last year and now most of the p-bulbs are rotted out. I will probably divide it and clean it up but Iím not holding out too much hope.

I don't want to brag myself but so far I only lost one orchid. It was a pbulb only but in a really bad shape.

Plus, my environment is very dry so....

You are either doing an excellent job or playing it safe with what orchids you buy. Either way, good job!

That is amazing!

Yeah, I have a love/hate relationship with my rainy, humid climate. On one hand- most of my orchids grow like crazy with minimal effort. Things can stay outdoors most of the year and watering is mostly taken care of by the frequent rains. Even in our 35-38 Celsius days in the summer, the humidity helps buffer the heat and most are not bothered at all. On the other hand- when something starts to decline and rot, they decline fast. That awful humid, stagnant air has killed a few of mine. I added a fan to my courtyard last year and that helped a lot. (Still canít keep that one angraecum species alive though, lol).

By other hand, starting now and up to october I must water everyday otherwise I lose at least half of my collection.
This means at least two hrs/day.
