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.

I do like the color of that cymbidium. Really special!

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