Robin,I looked at Lowes they only had a few and I wanted one a little larger. I think they don't have the spring stock in yet.Menards had them last year and they don't have any in yet. It is still blooming, so I have time. The pot I have is plastic and my hubby drilled holes in it . I might have him just make me a bigger one. I have to weight it somehow though, the orchid is heavy.
I don't mind drilling holes in the pots, i picked them up at Goodwill for .99 and they don't have lids. :)
Pretty cynthia, go to Goodwill and see what they have to offer, or you can get the plain terracotta Orchid pots at lowes for cheap, they do have fancier ones also.
Robin I love the tea pots! Very pretty. You might want to drill
holes.I am looking for a large pot for my phal. It is too heavy for the pot that it is in. My smaller phal is blooming. Actually one of the clones is blooming.
Hello Everyone, I picked up these cute oriental tea pots and I want to put these orchids in them. What do you think??? If necessary I can drill out holes in the tea pots.
Air circulation helps, too. A ceiling fan or small table fan in the area helps too.
I have discoverd that with violets and orchids if they get some
natural sunlight they have less chance of getting it . My violets
had a mildew problem, they were not getting enough sun.
I give my orchids dome sun , but I am in zone 5 so the sun is
not as strong as in southern states.
Hi Everyone,I have a few pots of Cattleya orchid (including my profile photo), and at different times they were infected with fungi. The other species have never been affected. I have tried to read up on its care but never found any cause, or how to avoid it. Does anyone have answers?
Thanks for the link. I was looking at a light fixture that comes with a frame. It's meant to sit on a table . I really don't want to mount one from the ceeling right now. The fixtue looks like the one in the link.
Cynthia, you aren't that far away from me. I'm in Roselle (near Schaumburg)
Hausermann's in villa Park is having an Orchid Show and Sale thie weekend Feb. 24-26 and March 2-4 from 9am to 5:30pm
2n124 Addison Rd. Villa Park, Il 60182 it's right off of North Ave. I already posted the one happening at the Botanic Gardens.
I've lived out here for 23 yrs and I've never gone to Hausermann's even though it's 20 min away. I've always felt it was a dangerous place to visit being so close...lol
