    I rotate fertilizers. The orchids seem to like it.

    I'd do the same as below if I don't keep forgetting it.

    Dr. R.E.Holttum, author of ORCHIDS OF MALAYA, Singapore, 1953, had an unusual (and a touch disgusting) preference of fertilizers.

    "In my experience, by far the best manure for orchids is dilute urine (diluted at least 1:10 with water). This contains all the necessary salts, and also certain growth-promoting substances, which doubtless have some effect..."

    The above quotation was taken from the "Cultural Column", THE ORCHID JOURNAL, December, 1953. This short-lived publication was edited by Alex D. Hawkes.
