Hi, David -
First, that's great news about the plants that are rooting to your tree. With regard to the C. bowringiana... until it starts root growth, it doesn't matter much what you do... the...

There ARE orchids that will grow in Minnesota! Like your state flower Cypripedium reginae... actually, there are quite a few other terrestrials that require a cold winter.

Since the plant is grown onto the stump, it would be better not to move it. Perhaps, you could just add a bit of shade to that area? Some wood stakes, and either shade cloth or just a thin ordinary...

Something may be munching... look at the underside of the leaf and see if perhaps scale. Or it could be just on top. Would not be a bad idea to spray with Bayer's Advanced (or whatever they call it...

I do try to mostly re-home my divisions. First, to share the joy, and also to make room. Also, it's a safety valve... If I share a plant, and something happens to mine, perhaps the recipient of the...

What makes you think that when one has a large number of orchids (1200+ ) that they are repotted yearly? You are accusing people, members of this Board, of lying or cheating when they give such a...
