seems this post got more responses than any orchid related post on this forum which just enforces my view :rofl:

this is a very viable method and a necessary method for most vanda's that need to dry out fully between waterings.
The only downside is you cannot forget to water so you need to water it 365 times...

It must have felt quite trapped in it's pot, wants to break free. Now it can produce some roots which it is lacking.
If that is a spike the plant is in far too bad shape to sustain it. If I was you...

Hi Newgirl,
welcome to the forum. I don't like this forum very much as it just has a lot of trolls that will all want to give you their opinion without seeming to own many orchids themselves. I...

Aerial roots can absorb moisture from the air if the air has enough of it. Misting that often would certainly ensure that but the roots would never be saturated with too much moisture either like you...

2g/l seems a little bit high to me. Orchids generally need 1/4 of the strength of nutrients to other plants so I would go a bit lower with the epsom too, just my advice.

I would go with 0.5g/l and...

hi ray,
citric acid is the juice of a lemon. What makes me think it degrades is that all organic matter degrades and rots. Apple juice, orange juice, kiwi juice. They will all develop a layer of...

dirty it is understandable to be confused about it cause the term doesn't make much sense like you say.

The bottom line is to avoid keeping a tiny plant in an oversized pot - that is the gist you...

3% hydrogen peroxide kills plant tissue!

3% is human grade for wounds

0.1-1% is orchid safe

0.01-0.1% is safe for fish - kills algae

use 3% at your own risk!
