    Default Blc Keowee culture

    I have two of these, Blc Keowee 'Newberry' is bought blooming size, now is 5" clear plastic pot, Blc Keowee 'Newberry' AM/AOS was 4" pot NBS, now is in 6" basket. I was able to bloom them both last fall. But I have observed that new growth from both of them are getting smaller comparing to older pbulbs. I grow them with other Blcs, are Keowee more difficult to grow than other Blc?

    How are you feeding the orchid? Maybe it is not getting enough water? How old is the new growth? It may just be really 'new' and not mature and filled out yet.

    It might be. To save time, I put slow release fertilizer in orchid pots this past summer. I still mix and spray with liquid fertilizer when I can, but not evey week any more.
