    ok ive given plant food once since ive had it, how often should you give it?
    I water as and when it needs it..when soil feels a bit dry (read somewhere you should only water them when soil is dry?!).
    the house is consistently warm...if it does get a bit chilly the plants leaves go upwards and it closes in!! kinda shocked me the 1st time!!!

    Sphinxx.

    Looks like JB_OrchidGuy left the building and I know nothing about orchid fertilizer, but thought you might enjoy seeing a few CP's.

    LOL! But they're REAL easy! I have a real simple set up for most plants. I just put the pot in a plastic container, with a couple inches of distilled or rainwater and place at a southern or SE or SW window sill - and enjoy. I refill when the water is almost out. That's all. No fertilizers... very little maintenance (just water and light). Tres facile!

    LOL Jim, have they moved you into the sales department? If not, they should.

    Sphinxx, there are several CPs that are very hardy. Almost indestructible actually. The D. adaele in the first pic on this page is an example of one. They would be good starter plants.

    Looking at the window sill picture, a good lot of those plants came from you - particularly the butterworts. Hey... guess what... the P. potosciensis is sending up a stalk! And they said it couldn't be done...

    Sales? You shoulds seen me at the lab! All told, there were 11 co-workers that got D. spatulata or capensis or intermedia. Gotta be something I believe in to be this much of a pest!

    Hey guys a mate of mine went back to the shop where i got the plant and said she found exactly the same plant but it had a different label on it, this one said it was a cordylline?!
    unfortunatly the shop was so busy she couldnt speak to an assistant

    So is it a calathea or a cordylline?
