Jeeesh....there are so many supplements for our orchids. All interesting and good ideas. Thanks for sharing....Im glad i could start a thread so popular.....Now what about long term effects? This is what experimenting is all about. Is it the case, in 2 years, that i might have to bring my plant to an AA meeting. With the positive there is most likely always a negative aspect. Could supplements lower the level of natural sugars a plant produces for itself over time? Could alcohol also kill the good microbes within the media? As well as supplemental sugars attracting little pests? Preservatives ie. coke contributing to DNA mutation or antioxidants(oxygen absorbers) that produce free radicals, in which damage cells?........This is why us orchid junkies should experiment. Not to slow the party but i like to look at the full spectrum of things...Thoughts?
