Hi,
I just watched your whole video. Having heard so much about you from our forum members, I was curious. This is just loaded with truly useful information! I found your segment regarding the fertilizer amounts particularly interesting.
Thanks so much for taking the time to record this and also making it easily accessible to us.

I will make this a "sticky", so it will be a permanent reference. I highly recommend watching it.

The video from beginning to the end was very informative. Learned about the different pots to grow orchids in and how they should be used. The growing medium information will be helpful with my gardening.
Bart, you made it fun to watch.

Thank you

I watched it and it was a big help to me. I also ordered the book via Amazon as I need all the advise I can get. Will visit the nursery down there.
Thanks

I really enjoyed this video. Even though I am here in Georgia, I can adapt some of Motes methods for me. Hey. I need to write a little manual on growing orchids here in middle Ga.. What do you guys think? I am not a botanist or have a doctrine in plants, I am just a hobbyist.
HAVE A GREAT DAY!

We've released a new video. Florida Vanda Growing We had some problems recording it so we've labeled it a "rough cut" and will be reshooting it in the future, but still lots of good info. Enjoy.

Florida Vanda Growing, rough cut, now better processed by our Youtube friends: https://youtu.be/gIrMs6eseVk

We're also encouraging everyone interested in vandas to join a new Facebook group: Vandas. Click here to ask to join:
