    Intermediate grower. It gets better every year.

    Unfortunately, I haven't been able to make photos lately and the flowers are getting a little old.

    fingers crossed.
    Dale, could you let me know what ppms you use and how often...do they need more nitr. now or just a balanced
    I use Peters w/Cal at 100ppms...good...no good?

    I use .65 g of 13.3.15 per gallon delivered via a proportioner. TDS is 165 ppm. I fertilize my plants almost every day in the summer and about twice a week in the winter. I've never used "Peters w/Cal" so can't comment on it's effectiveness.

    Thanks Dale...I hope I can flower the ones I am in charge of as well as you have this ampullacea...
    Our summers are hot...last August three weeks of triple digits...the GH stayed in the lower nineties for weeks...even with a wall sized cell cooler....lost 10 of my 20 last September...a jay bird fogger is on my xmas list...think that will help.

    Very beautiful! I really like white and yellow color combinations in orchids. Is this in moss inside the treefern pot?
