    Thumbs up Video Demo on Repotting a Phalaenopsis Orchid

    On Sunday afternoon, Louis and I repotted a phalaenopsis in our greenhouse for a friend. She got it and it was growing in sphag and knew it needed to be repotted. I decided to bring along my camera and took several short videos of the process. Today, I edited those segments together and produced a video on repotting a phal. Instead of embedding it here, I will simply link to the page on the RVO Care Site where the video demonstration can be found.

    Thanks Ron! And, sorry to say, yes, that was my voice. LOL. I should have paid more attention to my articulation. It is so weird making commentary to a video. LOL. I need a script writer.

    I thought you did a great job, Bruce...you added information that was in the article before the video, and I thought you explained well.


    Bravo!

    Thanks Bruce. That was great!! You sound just as I expected, and it just makes you all the more real to us, having video and voice to go with your name.

    I have to tell you that the videos you've been posting are wonderful. I've enjoyed each and every one, and it's something that I think sets this site apart from all the rest, along with the wonderful friendships formed here.

    I applaud you and everyone involved with OT!!

    I must say I enjoyed that...especially the tapping of the orchid pot to get the bark to fill in. That video will be very helpful to those who need to see the instructions instead of reading it. I do recommend wearing protective gloves though when handling potting medium.
