    Default Roots/ leaves pics please

    I was wondering if our wonderful photo-genius Peter(you are *really* talented) could post some photos of the roots and leaves of some of your orchids. I'm especially interested in how your nodosa roots and leaves looks like. Lja, I tried my best to get a photo of my oncidium leaves, but it was just a serious blurred mess.

    Traci,

    My nodosa is quite small and planted in a pot instead of mounted, so most roots are not visible. I will try and take a photo of the plant later during the week and post it here. My cats have chewed on some of the leaves, so it won't look too pretty.

    Cats seem to lover orchids as much as their owners.

    Traci,

    Here's a picture of my nodosa. It is not a great picture but you get the "picture". New growths have emerged and the cats have really done a good job on the older growths.

    Hey, that isn't so bad. The dendrobium I saw at the meeting last night, now *that* was bad!

    LOL! about the dendrobium!

    the cats have really done a good job on the older growths
    For that reason, I've often wondered what Kitty Fricasse would be like....
