    Default I've ventured out with two new types of orchids!

    I just got home with two new types of Orchids that I have never grown. I have twp types of Paphs and a Vanda pure delight. None are in flower so no need to post picks (unless you want me to) but wish me luck on not killing them!

    Hi Miller, the paphs should follow the standard paph care found here: Paphiopedilum Orchid Care | River Valley Orchidworks

    Good luck with these and the vanda! I look forward to seeing your photos of these new additions IN BLOOM!!

    cheers,
    BD

    Thanks for the links Bruce. Do you know what type of media I should use to repot them?

    Hey Miller - small redwood bark, not fine bark like for seedlings.
