August Landscaping Blooms

As an orchid addict, I found it difficult or impossible to throw away unhealthy plants.  I’ll bet a few of you out there can relate.  With much trial and error, I figured out how to bring them back to health.  When I was sure the plant was virused or had bacteria, I threw it away.  Bacteria has a nasty smell that’s hard to forget. Virused is more difficult, but I tried to err on the side of safety and tossed when in doubt.  That left the fungus infected and just unhappy-with-me plants.  Why I had so many unhappy plants would be the real issue, but in the process of it all, I learned a whole lot about Landscaping with Orchids.   Below are some of the survivors.
