Good Morning Ladies ,
Cheryl think of Orchids as air plants they need .. the pots w/ventalation mine are all in clay Orchid ones and more spray mist than water it's easy :) don't give up
GydaMarie how is the repotting going :)

My orchids keep dying! I just lost one over the winter that was about to bloom! I got another small one & it is starting to get yellow leaves. I'm usually good about not overwatering things, but I'm really not sure what I'm doing here. Someone at an orchid show told me they need to be repotted in new mix every other year, so I thought that was what went wrong with the last one, but I don't know what the problem is with the new one. It could be the pot as it is in the one it came in which is ceramic & kind of tall & thin. Would it help to put it in a different pot? How do they do attached to a piece of bark?

Nice cymbidium, GydaMarie. Unfortunately, here in South Florida (Zone 10) the weather usually does not get cold enough for cymbidiums to grow.

Regards,
Brent

Oooh, GydaMaria, lovely new babies. Which grocery store? I might have to take a run over there.

Hello GydaMarie ,
Nice new Plants but you do know to get them out of the plastic w/no slats in the bottom :) my first Phals rotted becouse of that :).About the clips i get them from the People who sell me my PottingMedium, but try Home depot.

I've had two of my Phals for over twenty years, they are true members of the family by now. LOL So, if I haven't killed them off over the decades with repotting, I'm quite sure you, armed with all you know and your stuff from Repotme.com your chids should be just fine. I have faith in you, GydaMarie, I think you have natural talent for the game, judging by the photos!

That's the next stop on the list. I purchased some of her potting mix for Phals. I really like it and my Phals have perked up.

"We had an inch of rain last night, so I just went out to check that my new orchids did not get too wet. They are up against the house under the eves, it did get in a bit but not enough to worry about."
