    I always using organic fertilizer but in liquid form, like fish oil, or chitosan from shrimp by-product. And my opinion my plant show good performence to produce keiki and bulb size bigger but it can't stimulate flower. I always use chemical fertilizer to stimulate flower.

    I can take pictures of the dendro specie (the one with zigzag leaves)...its free flowering (really tine flower) but i'm not sure if it's the goat manure or just the nature of that specie...it did not stop blooming.

    I should have took pictures of the paph philippinense. I thought at first that the not roaming around root structure (although really fat and healthy) is not a good thing so I did not thought of taking pictures at all until I read the horse manure thing of Nick Van... dung!
