Congrats on the rescue! Yes, you're right... you don't need to fertilize much. Orchids are slow growing and really efficient with nutrients, because of the nutrient-poor environment in which they evolved. The exceptions (and there are exceptions to every blanket statement that one can make about orchids) are the rapidly growing ones - like Catasetinae during the growing season (so fast that you can almost watch them get bigger), Cymbidiums (produce big growths in a season) and some terrestrials. They use fertilizer minerals to make new tissue, so if they don't do that fast they don't need much. For routine living and growing, the carbs they make by photosynthesis do the job.

and finally, the paph maudiae vinicolors. i included these ina post on s/h about the difference in growth after putting one of the 2 in s/h. the other was moved over a couple months later, but the difference in growth is now quite obvious! the plants were identical upon transplanting the first one. anyone up for another edition of bloom time??!!
