It was hard for me to see the %. But, again, choose the one that offers a little more ammonia based nitrogen. Urea isn't as readily useful to the plants as a nitrogen source. Curse my aging...

Love this thread!

I giggled as I read. I have been successfully growing (and killing) orchids for almost 20 years. I see two modes of death: the black mush variety and the ever popular pot o' sticks. :roll:

Slc. Orpetti opened, and flower looks very different

I have posted two pictures. One (img 2758a) from last year's bloom cycle, and the one I took today (img 3605). What could cause these kinds of variations from one year to the next? I hope I...
