    "Loves" salts, I doubt. "Tolerates them well", more likely.

    Have you considered dosing with some Epson Salts, not sure if that would do the trick, just a suggestion. I know a major bulbo hybrid developer in Florida sprays all of his plants, except a few species, on the 1st of every month!

    Nope .........but the fertilizer I bought from local nursery containing Magnesium I hope it's more than enough to make it the plants more vigor and easily to induce flowers.Thanks Jack for the info of important element for the orchids.
