    Red face Feeling silly!

    Let me just first say sorry! Lol Of course after posting I went back and read ALOT more posts and realized that you guys must get alot of the same questions over and over again! Here's another newbie asking all the very common questions of flowers drooping, what kind of media to use, repot or not to repot, critters, what kind of fertilizer to use...SHEESH! Ah well, I'm getting my act together now so hopefully ya'll won't see me putting any more silly lil' posts. Maybe in the future if I do it won't be up here already! Thanks for the patience.

    Don't feel silly in this site, I have found that everyone is really friendly and will answer any questions no matter how often it is asked. It is better to ask than to remain in the dark.

    Molly (Cin) nailed it on the head. Ask away! We are all learning here and that is one of the things that make RVO OrchidTalk a special place! We have started this section called ASK THE SENIOR MEMBERS for just this purpose. We have moved several posts here and hopefully will be moving more to pack this area of the site with just the type of questions you were asking. It is our goal to make being an orchid newbie-- less scary. The members here care about growing orchids. We don't take ourselves too seriously, but we take what we do fairly seriously. We lightly call it ‘our addiction.’ SO join in and be as much of a part of the community as you would like to be! We are glad you are here!

    Cheers!

    to everyone!
    It's better to ask than being in the dark and not knowing! We will try our best to accomodate you even though we might not be able to answer your question(s) immediately!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Well I just have to say thanks so much for making me feel welcome and not feeling so silly anymore I'm glad to have found this site, I feel alot better knowing I can ask questions about this beautiful plant so maybe I won't kill this one too as much as I love plants! I never had alot of luck growing them in general but I like this one too much to mess this one up. Also, posting in forums is TOTALLY new to me! This is the very first forum I have ever joined considering I've been surfing the net for like 12 years now! The plant seems to be doing better btw! *Cheers* Actually I should say the flowers are, the plant has been great the whole time (figuring this out after reading posts) LOL Anyways, I'm glad to be a part of this friendly forum

    Hi Diane,
    That BIG Dendrobium speciosum that you bought during our shopping trip will make its move soon. If you check on the plants, you should notice it has been making roots and the eye(s) for the new growths probably have separated from the mother canes. It will complete its new growths in 1-2 months, mostly during the summer. Really fast and kind of fun watching it when that happens. Most of the time, it appears that the plant just sits there like a sculpture. Don't forget to let the plant dry out before watering it again and fertilize it weakly along with watering!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    dendrobium sepciousum is very spectactular and if you have the varitity agrandiflorum,it gets big.
    Thats the plant that is beside me in my avatar.Its in a 2 1/2 gallon bucket and had 5 spikes when the photo was taken.

    Hi Brenda, and welcome!

    I just wanted to add that if Diane and Sir Speedo have hijacked your thread, then you're truly one of us, now!
