It’s been a long time since I’ve made a “tour” video. I hope this is worth the wait. I’d like to thank all of you who have requested this as well as other videos
Many orchids need to be mounted to be at their best. This is a demonstration of mounting an Angraecum didieri. There are also tips on mounting orchids with other needs. As I mention in the video, mounted orchids typically need humidity over around 70% to do well.
Merry Christmas to all! I hope you enjoy this tour. I had some problems and had to edit this twice because the save file corrupted but at least I had the original copy.
Summer’s end beckons the start of the Catasetum season, a family of plants that go dormant during winter. Habenaris are in bloom which also go dormant during winter. These are both good for growing in homes where the winter’s heat causes humidity to plummet.
This video shows how to divide and repot Catasetum alliance plants. It also shows a lot of the cultural methods that I used with Clowesia Grace Dunn ‘Looking Glass’ that received a 92 CCE/AOS in January this year. Hope you enjoy it.
Habenarias are extremely easy to grow and bloom with one caveat: the go dormant in the fall and stay dormant through winter. I made this video to show how easy it is to repot the dormant tubers.
This is a genus of easy to grow terrestrials and two of them flower just in time for Christmas for me. Hope you enjoy this and warm holiday wishes to everyone!
Mounting orchids can seem intimidating but it doesn’t have to be. Here is a demonstration of mounting a Tolumnia. This and other orchids actually do much better mounted than in a pot. Just be sure that you can provide adequate humidity.
