Good try. Good king henry has a hastate/sagittate leaf shape. Also note the light vein through the centre of the above leaf.

peacock orchid problem

Posted: 18/05/2015 at 12:13

I planted my clients in April, in good rich peat compost in a nice big pot 12" diameter minimum. I find the leaves start showing around end of May. Flowers start around End of August, maybe September.

These orchids require a long growing season. They require full sunlight, at least six hours a day and the soil should be mildly acidic with a pH of 6.1 to neutral 7.0.

I must admit that I have never been that impressed with them.

Yes wishbone lots of separate bundles of leaves indicate the bulbs are dividing.





root trainers v. pots

You will find the pots rot very quickly when in the ground Boater. Once wet the bacteria break it up and the roots go straight through.

Camelia question

"Remove and dispose of spotted leaves that are on plants or have fallen. Do not water overhead as this spreads the fungus spores and favors infection. Reduce humidity around plants by providing adequate space between them and by pruning lower branches. Consider removing groundcovers beneath shrubs and mulching or maintaining bare soil instead. In very severe or special cases, copper compounds or chlorothalonilmay be used as a preventative treatment."

I am sure there will be other fungicides that will help with this.
