Talkback: How to repot a moth orchid

My moth orchid is making a new plant on one of the aerial roots. How and when do I pot this as a separate plant?

Like Shrinking Violet, my son and I are allergic to some, but luckily not all, strains of goose grass.  The resulting weals can take months to heal - most of my colleagues thought that my arms had been scalded.  I couldn't believe it when I saw a chef on Great British Menu advocating adding these to salads!!!  Ouch!

Help - pond is leaking!

Hi,

Thanks for the link.  We have not had chance to look for the leak yet, due to an unexpected trip into hospital. (I'm fine now.) I also seriously underestimated the size of the pond - it's actually 15m x 4m - and as we have lots of plants around the edge we've decided to tackle it a section at a time.

Our 4m x 2m (1.5m deep) wild-life pond has had a small leak for a few years now, so is always 10-12cm below full. We never managed to find where the leak was so learned to live with it, but recently the level has dropped to about 30cm from full -despite all the rain -I think this must be due to the local heron who has been visiting lately!  How do we find the leak ?  How do we repair the butyl liner? And how do we do all this without disturbing the wildlife (tadpoles, minnows, great diving beetles, dragonfly larvae, etc., etc.).  The pond was installed by a professional but he has since retired and his business no longer exists.
