    Hi everyone,

    photos of my N.hamata. Below are more photos.





    It is quite small at the moment and I am wondering what actions could be taken to encourage it to grow faster and larger without recoil to the plant? I've grown it under the same conditions as most highlands and am a bit hesitant to use chemicals or fertilisers as it may burn the leaves and I just might stuff up and end up killing it! Which would be most dis-appointing.
    Has anyone had much luck with superthrive and what are the effects on your plants? I've found it useful in circumstances when plants are sent bare root to help them overcome the stress period much quicker. And what concentration should be used?

    i used superthrive, i think it works (although i dont have nothing to compare to)
    when i starting foliar feeding my Ventrata with superthrive, it started vining [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    also, i think thats why my VFT seed are germinating quickly.
    i took them 2 weeks to germinate, as i used 1 drop per 2 cups of water when i watered them for the first month.
    now, i dont use it and it seems they grow a bit slower
    but remeber, dont use to much of it...
    it can change your plants sex and do all kinds of crazy stuff.
    Just my experience...

    Hi Hellz,

    Are you serious? Can you be more specific on what crazy results you have had? I mist it over my plants leaves and they turn a lucious green in a day and I've noticed they make the leaves and vines thicker as opposed to plants that I haven't used them on. Can it really change the plants' sex? Or your just having me on. Hehe.

    im serious...
    a orchid groiwng friend of mine has said this that he has had some freaky results with plants, resulting in changed sex, and other freaky things, due to the hormones and who knows what in super thrive
    thats y its 1 drop per gallon for regular use,
    or 1 drop per cup for a high concentration
    im gonna try this when i get a chance with an extra nep
    another friend of mine wants to see if it can change the sex a certain plant that yields a certain illegal substance from the female flowers(if u know what i mean...)

    i thought all orchids were both female and male.....no specific sex. besides "sex" is genetic its kinda hard to change genes once they are "hard-wired"

    i didnt realize super thrive had hormones. i thought it was just B vitimins and the like. i dont have any and never have so i havent read a lable besides humans taking steroids does nothing to change sex. it may produce changes that may look like the opposite sex but it does nothing geneticly.
