    Default Small pieces of bark EVERYWHERE

    My husband is starting to insinuating that I do it on purpose: spreading small pieces of bark all over. I guess this is something I have in common with most orchid growers: let's start a support group :-D!

    Mine is used to the bark and chc pieces by now - it's the bits of charcoal that end up drawing streaks on our floors that drive him crazy!

    Mine is awfully patient, maybe I SHOULD give him chocolate? hehe I'm the one that gets tired of bark on the floor and the Collie snatches the little clay balls and wants to eat them, oops! However, it might be a hint, he made me a lovely OUTDOOR potting bench with a sink! Perhaps I can pull that up in the front yard when I go to repot my new plants and make him (and me) happy!
