Hello group, this is a great forum where everyone shares their experiences with our plants. Ive always loved orchids primarily because of their longevity and beauty. They fascinate me
Three years ago I bought a basket of Dendrobium Jacqueline Thomas and Uniwai Pearl from one of the online retailers. I wasn't too happy with them because the plants were small, mere seedlings!!
When they finished blooming I didn't have the heart to throw them out since it was pricey
I made a pile of lava rock, topped it with many bags of charcoal and orchid bark. I planted my dens and other later acquisitions directly in this mix and aimed the sprinklers at them. I keep the tags on my plants for future identification
Here's the result
What a nice arrangement of den you have there especially the dark purple one. Is that a Stapelia in the background on the right under all those gorgeous white flowers.
lovely outside growth, well done
Max eagle eyes! Yes it is a stapelia. It grows like a weed, I have it in a pot and it cascades over the edge
Lovely dendrobium orchids!!
Lovely, quite the flowering garden bed you have going there. - martha
Lovely landscaping. Happy to see that there are still Jacqueline Thomas around. They used to be very popular in the 1960's .
Jacqueline Thomas is great Yew Sung, they get up to 3 feet long. I also have Lois Bleriot, its an soldier too
They look nice when planted out like this, but beware for snails and slugs in the medium...
