    Aww, I basically adore you, you know. I will never take your advice, even if it WERE in the form of lectures, offensively. Everything you tell me is something I don't know. You put up with all of my dumb questions! I think you will go down in history as my orchid mentor....
    And before I gag, I am going to STOP this sappiness NOW....

    Hi, I've been lurking on this site for more than one year, but this is the first time I post a message. Kirstie, I think I also bought from the same grower some Catt seedlings in the NYIOS (just from the tag and the container). Mine are not bad, I got them on Friday and immediately removed the packing materials, and I wait a few days before watering them. I did notice there are dirt like stuff coming out of the 2" pot when I soaked them. I decided to repot one and it turned out most of the bark were broken down into tiny particles, maybe not from decompsing, but from termite damages. So you might as well repot yours if you see the same fine dirt came out from your pot or if the plant can easily be detached from the pot.

    Hey Qing... neat I made you post your first post - I'm proud!!! hehe
    Nice to meet you.
    I repotted my other plants - I don't remember noticing if the other one I got from the seller was broken down potting material.... but it's in my usual mix now so it should be fine....
    I ordered a great deal on 5 orchids this morning (my husband will have a fit and I have to find somewhere to put them all so maybe he won't notice so much? LOL!!!) so that makes me feel better....
    Post more often!!

    I can post it, sure :c)

    Maybe even pics if I'm not too lazy...

    So my Cym dropped all of it's buds - do I cut the spike all the way down now? As close as I can?

    Off to do errands. I need cups to grow some AV leaves that dropped - gonna keep trying that one.... I still don't believe it works! LOL
    Too bad I couldn't do something like that with orchids!

    !
    I start AVs from leaves quite often. But you can't use dropped leaves... You need to break a leaf off the plant with at least 2" of stem. Let them 'scab' over for an hour or two. Then dip in powedered rooting hormone up the stem past the point where the soil will come. Then water lightly. water once a week, do not let them sit in water. It takes months. As long as the leaf remains solid, don't give up. Make sure you use a container that drains well.

    I have had this happen to some of my Catts. It's not sunburn or crown rot, have had those... I don't know what it is, but once you touch infected plant DO NOT touch anything else.... I'm now getting it on other plants
