    O.K. you orchid people...Here it is: Showy Mexican Orchids

    Hi Andrew & the rest of you orchid growers...No, this was never a "secret." I found Weyman a few months back, and started talking with him. He is a "past Master" at growing orchids! Anyway, I wanted to test his theories on MY OWN orchids, before I passed them onto anyone else. Happily, his information works just great! I told B.D. (Bruce ) about the site a couple of weeks ago. However, I do have a life other than growing orchids..............So, I'm just now getting around to telling everyone about the site. At least I now know that it's great information, and It works! Enjoy!

    P.S. My husband says that he can hear the singing, and party in the greenhouse...everytime I fertilize...LOL! Betty :-)

    OK, Can't take it anymore! LOL! How do you give your orchids honey and why? Does it help to re-attach the top three inches of a 2 foot oncidium spike? I hope! I just accidently broke the top three inches off one of mine. Am really ticked! The super glue didn't work --- perhaps the honey would. Am really interested in learning more about the use of the honey. I can understand the bennifits of beer and vodka. One nice think about the booze is that I won't have to drink alone ever again!

    I'm sorry to hear about the oncidium spike, Bill. Similar things have happened to me over time with different orchids, and I don't have any answers for you. So sorry. Betty :-(
