FWIW the photo presented here isn't very clear. It could be a root aphid, or it could be a mealy bug. You need a decent lens to tell them apart. They are cheap online. I have a cheap magnifying...

Hey, umm, I am really sorry my ignorance on the term "scape" kicked this discussion off. Honestly I had never heard the term used like this, and I *honestly* couldn't tell from the wikipedia article...

I think she said something a little bit different. She said H202 /can/ be harmful to the roots, and that it is probably ineffective against living snails.

H202 naturally forms in rain water in...

Why S/H isn't for me and now.

Any chance of a photo? I'm not clicking even after rereading the botanical definition of scape over and over. :-)

Hrm. I think however waternet does. It says average calcium is 41.35mg/l, it says average "carbonate" is <5mg/l. I think "Carbonaat" is carbonate anyway, and i assume that means calcium carbonate. I...

I use bark amended with leca, perlite, charcoal, tiny amounts of sphagnum in some cases, tiny amounts of peat sometimes, and these days sometimes vermiculite instead of sphagnum. (In more or less...

Nice plant, but I don't get it. It looks much larger than my Oncidium twinkle.

Yeah, pretty much. Or less even, adult plants can last for more than year with no water. Super easy to kill by over-watering, they will absorb it and burst like a balloon. I grow them right next to...

FWIW, its really hard to say what might have caused your spike issues. Change in weather maybe?

Dendrobiums grow from a rhizome. You can cut through it. The usual rule of thumb is make sure you keep at least 3 canes on each segment.

Reminds me of asking orchid advice from a orchid grower in Singapore. His answer was "I don't do anything I just stick it in the ground/pipe/fence/whatever". Must be nice to be able to do that. :-)
