    - It would be interesting to know the exact composition of water in Tra Vinh which is clearly an "hard water" (= canxi water).
    - Only then, it would be possible to artificially reproduce a similar water.
    - The hardness of water depends not only of its content of calcium but also of minerals like magnesium among other things.

    now i recalled...hard water. this is the type of water coming out of deep well system in the province of Bohol (my birthplace) here in the philippines. Bohol is an island in Philippines and is considered a limestone formation. Limestone is a major natural resources in the province and the Philippine government owns a limestone quarry in there. Hmmm must be a good thing to setup an orchid farm in our province....given the budget though.

    - "canxi" is "Calcium", right ?
    - Water that contains a high concentration of calcium is called "hard water".

    - Hard water is generally not harmful to one's health and can be drunk.

    Hard water is water that has high mineral content (in contrast with soft water). Hard water minerals primarily consist of calcium (Ca2+), and magnesium (Mg2+) metal cations, and sometimes other dissolved compounds such as bicarbonates and sulfates. Calcium usually enters the water as either calcium carbonate (CaCO3), in the form of limestone and chalk, or calcium sulfate (CaSO4), in the form of other mineral deposits. The predominant source of magnesium is dolomite (CaMg(CO3)2). Hard water is generally not harmful to one's health.

    - My question was : «Do you grow other kinds of orchids like vandas or cattleyas ?»
    - Do you have big plants too with this kind of plants ?
