    Gotcha. Yeah I only reluctantly got on FB to keep tabs on friends and it's been just as much of a PITA as I'd expected, LOL. ~Joe

    I already hit Ozzy up on FB, good call though. How are we not connected on there? Sent you a friend request. ~Joe

    Hi all. Some friends of mine are visiting the Charleston area with their toddler and they have some unstructured time in their itinerary. They enjoy hiking and other naturalist activities, but have...

    Wow, very nice Zero! I also found Mexi Pings to be remarkably durable. Until mice ate mine. *sad trombone noise*

    Yeah I thought I saw one too at the beginning of the month, when I mentioned to Zu I was planning to post a pic. There was at least one submission up at that point. Strange.

    Thanks Andrew, I'm...

    You're feeding pitchers with Osmocote?...

    You're feeding pitchers with Osmocote? Interesting. I've had success dosing with time-release pellets, but not sure I ever heard of anyone feeding with them. Guess it makes sense. Anybody know how it...

    Huh, I dug around for a while and the closest I could find was January 2017 and February 2016 - no February 2017. What's done is done, no worries. I shared the pic and that was my main objective. :)...

    I double-checked and turns out this is not the seedgrown one Zu gave me, but another sent in the same trade - Paphiopedilum 'Michael Koopowitz'.

  9. No February POTM? Well I told Zu I was going to post this orchid

    Zu sent me this great compact lady slipper over six years ago - IIRC, it's one she sprouted (maybe even crossed?) herself. Last year it finally bloomed for the first time. This is the second spike...

    Wow, hats off Butch! Any idea when you will hear back on the submission?

    How dry is your grow area? My household humidity is in the 50%-60% range and I soak most of my Tillandsia about once every one to two months. Aside from that I spray them when I think about it,...

    I also second this - very interesting question. I wonder if we could find some ID keys for the region.

    Nice - I've got that cross or the mother (long since lost the tag) but I've never got it to double bloom! If it's anything like mine, it'll be pretty easy to please. It's the first orchid I've got to...

    I'm also getting back into the swing of things! One of the lady slippers you sent me back in the day started flowering as of last year. It's just started to unfurl it's first bloom of the year - I'll...

    Oh, I'm aware. I was abusing the term as shorthand to differentiate from bulbs designed to emit the visible spectra. Perhaps I should've said "PAR curve" instead of "PAR spectrum." I was referring to...

    Thanks Mike. That's closer in some ways but I meant the full visible spectrum. Not sure why LED grow lights advertise as full spectrum these days but I guess they're talking specifically about the...

    I'm building custom fixtures and using multiple bulbs doesn't mesh well with other parts of my design. I only need to light one plant at a time, and for proof of concept I can have the lamp pretty...

    Even the browned ones don't look entirely dead, so don't give up on them. 18F is not necessarily too cold, I don't think, but the tricky thing about freezing temperatures is desiccation. Cold air has...

    Nah I make the trip to Seattle all the time, Portland is only a little bit further. I'll probably want to fold it in with a longer trip when I do go, but I should be able to make it on occasion. Not...

    Just curious but... are you sure you need a terrarium at all? Is your home especially dry or cold? Most genera do fine in household conditions, with the exception of a few like Nepenthes and...

    A terrarium that small will get very hot in a southern-facing window, especially if sealed. Make sure to keep an eye on your peak temperatures if you choose to stick with natural light.

    Full-spectrum LED screw-in replacement bulbs?

    I'm mostly using T5HO fixtures currently and have been meaning to set up a few specimens apart from my plant racks under their own lamps. At first I thought I'd shop around for CFLs, but then I...
