These are some of the flowers out at the moment of the Q5 Sarcocoilus Velvet cross. There are more to come out which have spikes on. This cross alone gives us flowers from December to May with a full range of shades plus there are four other crosses in this group.

This is the start of the Christmas flowering and any plants with Sarcochilus hirticalcar as a parent will continue to flower until May/June. We would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Part 5 of my Orchid Mounts and the last. All our Dendrobium linguiforme varieties are mounted on cork. These are the only ones that get foliar feed once a week. Well we hope that this helps our orchid growing friends and gives them other ideas for better growing results and makes things a little easier.

Part 4 of Orchid Mounts and Pots. This is one of my latest ideas for plants that need more belly room to grow pendulously out over the pot like terete leaf dens, bulbophyllums, Vandas etc, and many other orchids. You have two 140mm port mesh pots, cut the bottom out of one and upend it onto the other joining them together at the holes provided. Then make a hanger for it as per photos.

Part 3 of the Gutter Guard Mounts. These are made up of the Plectorrhiza tridentata, more commonly known as the tangle root orchids as the roots are all twisted in the air and look untidy. Since trying the first one in the gutter guard mount we found the roots were turning and going back into the mount chasing the food as you can see in all of the photos. I have now potted all of our Plectorrhiza this way and also Peristeranthus hillii which are growing very well.
