    I have a lot more orchids now as you can see! Most of them were bargains from tescos (£1.70 to £5.00). The fern log is from cornwall, I set up an old aquarium which has plant lights.

It keeps making new growths but then they go black and die.

    Have you bloomed your Mini Mark? I just recently acquired on. I hear it's touchy...
