    Thanks. I have been watering the vandas at least every other day. I have repotted the mini cat back into a 4" pot, and cut the leaf off. What type of fungicide should I use? I know I am going to get several different responses to this, but I will figure something out. Also, please include the dilutions with recommendations. Thanks.

    You can use straight lemon juice or vinegar. No dilution necessary..just rinse well afterwards.

    As far as the leaf...hmm..It looks like natural death to me. But these are in a North window, right? I've never been sucessful blooming even mini-catts in that kind of light. I say..up the light!

    if you are looking for reccomendations for a fungicide, i have been using this in rotation with others and have reccomended it here before. A new product called Rhapsody. It is an organic Bacillus subtillus solution. works great and gives your leaves a little bit of a sheen to them sometimes also..
