"Keryn, your orchids are lovely.  I'm in north east WI, USA zone 5.  It gets bitterly cold here occasionally (this morning it is minus 3*F).  I keep my orchids indoors as they could only be outside about half the year, and then…"

"I would suggest you save your money and use plain plastic pots with drainage in the bottom.  The orchids will be just as happy in them. "

Carol McIntyre/Zn5/WI commented on S. Asherah Taylor's group Orchids
"If the "roots" you speak of are green and growing above the soil let then grow where they are.  They are called "air roots" and don't want to be in the soil. Sounds like you're doing well."

Carol McIntyre/Zn5/WI replied to John F zone 6 Cinti Oh's discussion Iris Borers in the group Iris
"Let's post this again... Need help with iris borers....  I have grown iris for 15+ years--- have hundreds of German Bearded iris, and have never had a problem.  But this year suddenly they're infested with borers. Had I…"

"I currently have 30 orchids, all very happy...most in bloom most of the time and would never add ice to them!"
Jul 9, 2013
Carol McIntyre/Zn5/WI commented on S. Asherah Taylor's group Orchids
"Sorry---  the "Add ice" thing is at best a marketing ploy.  Orchids are tropical plants and are shocked by ice.  NOT a good way to water.  Orchids ARE easy to grow, but read up a little more and water properly. …"

Carol McIntyre/Zn5/WI commented on Nancy Burstein's group Iris

Carol McIntyre/Zn5/WI commented on Nancy Burstein's group Iris
"Things are just getting going here in E. Central WI, Z5.  I'm SO happy to see that my BIG (20x15) bed of Heritage Harbor Blue Bearded Iris (1954) is all coming back.  It was WAY overgrown last fall so I dug it all up, cleaned, divided…"

LOVE SO MUCH YOUR IRIS PIC...SAW IT AND HAD TO CLICK AND SEE WHO HAD THIS BEAUTY! Had to laugh at comment below about spending $ on bulbs instead of purses, I'm like that, too! LOL

I know what you mean. I am retired, so have to be careful. I just would rather spend money on bulbs than purses. Seems logical. We are very dry here. Almost at a draught stage.
see ya

Hi Carol, I honored you requested me as a friend.....you may be sorry. With a master gardener as a friend I'll be picking your brain alot. I'm in Door Co. Wi. about 2 1/2 hrs north of you. I think you got the precip. that missed us today. Your pictures are gorgeous. I've just gotten back to work at the resort and been starting to uncover some of the flower beds with the bulbs in them. It's nice to see them neat and clean with the daffs. poking up. Let me know more about you.

"That's interesting, Keryn. They do look a bit like gladioli, except the gladioli we have here don't make all of those leaves. (The leaves definitely remind me of irises)"

Unknown bulbs

"Ive done some looking on the net, I think they could be a form of Gladioli nanus, or baby Gladioli. Gladioli or sword lily are South African  to tropical Africa. They are really an Iris. A lot plants came in the early days on sailing ships and…"
