Very beautiful and I am jealous.
nice growing randy. keep it up.
The 2nd spike from my Ascocenda Prapathom Gold has opened, and boy it was a sight
seing it with 2 spikes in bloom sadly I was too busy to take a photo of both spikes in bloom
that the first spike has finally wilted....
Those are awesome, Randy! WOW!
Lovely blooms. And leaves so green. How shaded are they Randy?
they get lots of sun Angel, they're only shaded but a layer of black net.... but they love this place better than my main grow area which receives much more sun.... but ends up with burned leaves.
A single layer? I've never tried netting on orchids. Perhaps I should try it on strap vandas and some dends.
Yes, just a layer... I noticed that without that layer of net the leaves of the Strap Vandas
can easily be scorched... so then I placed a layer of net since 2 layers seems to be too
much for me... and boy did it make a big difference for the straps.... This gives them
lots of light without the risk of burning the leaves.
Next year I'll be replacing that net with a clear polycarbonate, which i hope will let in more
light and block the radiant heat and increase the humidity.
