    Default Vanda Mimi Palmer question.

    I would post a pic but we are having sever thunder storms at the moment and would rather not get struck by light
    My Mimi Palmer is growing well and currently sending out tons of new roots. My concern is that the leaves, mostly on bottom, are not completely folded out. Imagine a piece of paper folded in half and each side of fold remaining close together. Its grown outside and gets watered for 15 minutes twice a day from overhead watering system. Any idea what I may not be providing that is causing this. Also, all my orchids have a nylon ball on Nutricote attached for fertilising.

    Thanks,
    Miller

    The lower leaves are the earlier ones. What you are seeing may have something to do with their culture earlier in life.
