But everything else still applies to them, ALL plant matter basically. You need a phytosanitary certificate, which is bound by some very undefined requirements.

These all need to have a checking...

I think people overestimate the influence the UK has, honestly it's not worth the hassle when they have hundreds of millions of potential customers in the rest of Europe

Shadeflower have you tried Elite Orchids? I've always had great specimens arrive in perfect condition for me. They mainly focus on Paphs, Phrags and Bulbos but have some Dens and some Dracula's.

I'll post some pics in the relevant area when I see some changes in my cymbidium.

It would/is be bland without European vendors! The UK has some really fantastic vendors I'll go back to, but their...

I'm not so much worried about the water in the root area, it's the water on the leaves. This is a NoID cymb, and I got it recently so I've never rebloomed it before. I'll bring it back inside likely...

Yeah I've put it outside now, next to my water feature that splashes water out. Hopefully the leaves don't go bad from the water.

@waterwitchin I don't mind a few munched leaves, and it's just a NoID cymb. It's also in semi hydro and the UK is going through some hot weather. Maybe I'll move it outside for a bit, I have them...

I could make out their legs, maybe they were about 1mm, and a couple were 2mm and they looked super fat, like they were about to lay eggs.

UK vendors (after Brexit)

I'm desperate for a Rhynchostylis Gigantea or Retusa, but from what I can see, I can't find any being sold that will deliver to the UK. I know Burnham's had some a while ago but I'm not sure if...

Red Spider Mites Prevention

I'm very fortunate that so far, I've only dealt with fungus knats in my orchids which are a very easy fix. However, outside I've been seeing a couple of spider mites. No colonies or anything major,...

I've had it now for a couple of months. I fertalized it when I first got it, when it was still in moss. However, I have no signs of any pests anywhere either. I'll make up a really weak mix for it...

Dracula Lotax mark on leaf

I've had this Dracula in semi hydro and its roots all seem really happy. However, today I noticed a weird mark on the leaf. I'll post a normal image and the edited image to see how the discolouration...

The Dracula is a Lotax so it's flowers are above and not below rhizome. The height for a temp difference will be useful, but it'll have to be a solid structure. Perhaps lava rock would work the best?...
