For a start, my inclination would be to repot - probably small bark rather than sphagnum (which has its benefits, but also can be tricky to get right) Bark will give you air spaces. Also... how...

Glad you enjoyed... the spur is wrapped up in the bud. If you watch it as the bud develops, the spur emerges first - with at least one kink, maybe two to get it folded up next to the bud. After it...

They definitely have a way to go. I think it's pretty cool the way the spurs are "packaged" in the bud - sort of folded up, and then they escape and eventually smooth out the kink. Even as the...

Again, temper that "very dry" bit... orchids in the wild don't live in the desert. By my standards, the natural "very dry" is "damp and humid and chilly" in monsoonal regions. I guarantee that none...

That almost looks like a pink algae or mold. (The sort that grows on cream cheese that has been around too long). Try giving roots a spritz of physan (which won't harm them but is a good algicide) ...

It's all in the fine points of your conditions... orchids are highly adaptable, and if what you give is close enough to what they want, they thrive. If it works, no such thing as "wrong". One only...

Also, the repeat treatments are really important. If you have other products too, rotate them so anything that is resistant to one gets nailed by another.
