    Default My new mokara and aranda beauties

    I bought these top cuttings of these three beauties last weekend at the Fairchild Tropical Gardens Orchid Festival. I'll be mounting them all on a cylinder made of chicken wire that I'lll put in a clay pot so that I can move them around as needed.

    Beautiful! Wish I was better at growing these types. Don't know what you're going to use to hold the chicken wire in place but expanded clay pellets work well. Keeps the pot reasonably light not messy and drains very quickly should your plants decide to take root in the pot.

    Thanks Chris. These all seem to do well here in the tropics of South Florida. LOL I'm planning to use either the clay pellets or charcoal (or maybe a mixture of both). My cousin in Jamaica grows all of his vandas and most of his other orchids in charcoal and they all do really well.
