    Default My new haul

    Okay, I went crazy again this morning and decided I will go orchid shopping. I went to 2 local nurseries. I got this huge unknown Catt. in a 6 1/2" pot for $15 and a Den. Kinglianum in a 5" pot for $20 but the owner who was so nice and helpful let me have both for $30. The Kinglianum has at least 50 canes not including the keikis and the old ones. He has a lot of cymbidiums also.

    The Neo Falcata was from a different nursery.

    It's going to be a busy weekend as I need to re-pot all of them. But I'm happy

    Thanks for looking,
    Marissa

    Okay, after cleaning and cutting off the dead roots on the Neo, found out that I have more than what I needed. The whole thing was so big and would not fit in the little Japanese pot so I had to break it apart and find another pot and still have few more left. Now I have to figure out if I should mount them on a grapewood or in an upside down clay pot.

    Maybe a basket would look nice. We grow ours in a wooden vanda basket with lava rock as the potting medium.

    I don't have any Vanda basket or lava rock available, not even sure where to find it. I don't believe the stores that I go to carries lava rock. Anyway, I decided i'll just stick them in this grapewood, and use this red ribbon to hold them in place. I was able to re-pot the big guy too. Poor thing, the old medium was so broken down. I see 3 sheaths, and hopefully they don't blast.

    The Den. Kinglianum has to wait until next week.
