I did have something chewing on some of my orchids' leaves. Not sure if they were slugs or snails. Tried to find them but couldn't and didn't see any slime trails. Might have been caterpillars.

Pot. Love Triangle 'Doris' trade

Hi everyone. Last year I accidentally bought a community pot of this orchid and ended up with 23 seedlings. They've grown pretty well and are about 2-3 times larger now. While it would be awesome to...
