Yes the tablets have lots of additives. I do have the snow melt product and will play around with that. I just don't know the amounts of each in the mix. Thank you

Well that's good to know. I use medium size bark chips and it still stays moist at the bottom long after the top has dried out. That's the reason for making ventilation holes towards the bottom....

I believe they are done growing as more new leaves have appeared that are also smaller. I think when another leaf grows the previous one is done growing?

what causes new phal leaves to grow smaller ?

If light and temperature along with humidity are adequate could it be they need more nitrogen ? I feed weakly-weekly with mostly Dyna-Gro orchid pro which is a 7-8-6 formula and do have Miracid here...

Do any on the forum use Orchiata ?

I have purchased a small bag of Orchiata but none of my orchids will need re-potting for months. Do you add charcoal to it ?

I do the same with my orchid pots. I concentrate the holes towards the lower third of the pot since the top dries out faster. If the orchid has a wide root system and needs a bigger pot to...

I agree with Arizona Jean. In the garden it needs reapplied after a rain to be effective , so adding to potting mix most likely won't be of any use . Just my opinion.

I use distilled water or rain water when available. My tap water is too hard--read 268 when I last checked it. I did find Ray's calculator after posting this question. A great handy tool !
