    "What is it, Doctor?"

    "I'm afraid it's definitely Orchiditis!"

    "Is there... a.. cure? Can I slow down?"

    "Nothing can be done.... I'm sorry....."

    * Laughing * That is a good one Bench . I have a couple of the Minis. mounted on a grape vine they were pieces from a repot , tying the whole thing plug with plant to a mount might be the easiest . They also do well in pellets I have one in S/h did not think it would be happy but it is . Gin

    Howdy, Timo!

    Didn't recognize you're new avatar. It's pretty, but the old one had more color...

    Was going through my pic files and found a pic of my Dendrobium fleckerii, this has got to be my fave Ozzie Dend so thought I'd put it for a change. It has this beautiful furry lip and the colour...

    for the bigger pic.

    Cheers

    Nice collection, Tim! (And nice pics!) Makes my assortment look tiny, and yet I feel as though I'm up to my armpits in 'chids!

    ok, ok, I'll do a revamp tonight, when I get back from work and re-do the whole collection thing.. there's a couple of other pics I have which are plants I don't have and really, my website just needs a good ole upside-down, inside out overhaul...

    so watch this space...

    About the dends growing out of chunks of wood.More than likely it's not wood but coconut .That's what I was told when I got mine.Apparently alot of Florida growers are doing this.Just don't ask me how as I can't answer you
