Great! I may try some osmocote on cuttings that I can spare or a rajah offshoot when the next batch of offshoots is ready to come off in a few months.
Wow Rob, I'll bet you jumped a bit when you saw those baby rats! I used fruitflies but only in a terrarium.
For you who grow in terrariums and want to do the pot flush and use fertilizers you can do it if you leave your plants in their pots and not bury them in soil. Then you can take them out and put them on a slotted shelf over a 5 gallon pail and water through the pot that way. I combine twice monthly Urea Free 30-20-20 liquid orchid fertilizer (I think It's Growmore brand but I can't remember offhand) + balanced liquid micronutrients and feeding crickets as well as 2-4 times weekly pot flushes with R/O water this way. I rarely use Superthrive because I don't notice a real increase in growth by using it. I do use it when making 1-2 node cuttings, but that may be more superstition than anything else...!
