    Thank you MCschrum,
    I am quite the newbie, and also sometimes has a comprehension issue due to a health issue. BUT........ with friends like all of you especially my kind friend Nataliwind, she always responds when I need help. Now you...thank you so much.
    I have a concern about my dendrobium..... I like home remedies, and organic.... and if I do have a fungal infection......I do not know what and how to use.
    I do hope someone will chide in.
    God Bless Y'all.

The mixture I made is supposed to treat fungal, plus a host of other things. What do you suggest I use? What is a systemic?
    I feel so dumb.

    hi Karen,
    Sorry for the late response. I was really busy last days - my kid's birthday and Orchid Show hosted by our Club, today our Club October meeting and tons of other things going on.
    There are different kinds of fungicides. The most common are contact and systemic. Contact fungicides protect plant only locally, if I can say so. I mean it does not go into plant tissues; it protects plant only on the spot where it was applied. Contact fungicides, like Dithane M 45, should be used only if a problem occurs. Systemic fungicides move to different parts of a plant through vessels and can be used also as a preventive "medicine". I've read and I believe it is true that systemic fungicides also protect new growths which appear after treatment.

    I never used cinnamon as a component of a solution. I use cinnamon powder to treat cuts or broken\damaged leaves, roots etc.

    I like the Dendrocoryne section with all the Australian Den. hybrids. There are some very nice hybrids coming around for these.

    My favorite is Latouria section. I have been successful with Den. spectabile. Like its scent, too.

    I live in southern Ca and like the Australian Dens.The growing conditions is Australia are very similar to So CA so i find them easy to grow. They can also be very beautiful. Hooray for stick mounted Dendrobiums!!!! It's been a long time since my last contact. I have relocated to Thousand Oaks, CA ---- vendor information removed -see faqs on posting----Thanks Tom Smith
