To Catt Mandu & Wendell: congratulations on your early success and steady success! Perhaps I fuss too much with mine. I just noticed today that the orchids that are the most difficult for me to reach in my mini greenhouse, are doing the best. Why do you suppose that is? My guess is that they rarely get moved, bothered, watered, or fussed with. Obviously, they get just what is required and not much more - or they wouldn't be alive, LOL. I have a Sobennikoffia robusta. Whete it was where I could reach it easily, it got spritzed more often. I noticed that the roots would rearrange themselves, climbing out of the pot because they were not happy. I moved it and now cannot get to it as often. I looked at it on Tuesday and discovered it has developed nice bright green new roots....PROBABLY BECAUSE I DON'T BOTHER IT AS MUCH. I truly believe that there are very, very few orchids that need constant attention (if they do, you have the wrong environment for them). I should have said "providing an orchid has the correct environment, very few need constant attention" and the more we fuss with them, the more for fatalities we'll have. THANK YOU BOTH AND ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT!
