Miltonia spectabilis

Miltonia spectabilis
From Brazil at elevations around 800 meters, inflorescence erect or arching, to 8" long, with one or two flowers up to four inches long arising from a new pseudobulb growth.

I was giving a talk in Northumerland last year and was given a fairly large woeful looking plant of the above. It was sagging under the weight of the water in the fibrous mount which was very distorted.

For the size of the plant there should have been lots more flowers.... but it is still in recovery.

Phalaenopsis Mini-mark

Phalaenopsis Mini-mark. Unfortunately my daughter allowed water to gather into the centre of her plant causing it to rot. I ended up with the plant to try and save it. All I did was to remove it from the pot and secure it to a piece of driftwood. The roots were then sprayed twice a day with lukewarm clear water. After three weeks two new growths appeared as seen on the images submitted.

Effect of decomposing media on dendrobium leaf

My first thought was that it was bacterial or fungal infection. So I just started to cut the infected parts of the leaves, using cinnamon powder on the cut and spraying the leaves with anti fungal/ anti bacterial solutions. But it appeared that my plants were loosing leaves continuously.
Finally I decided to change the old coconut husk media with fresh ones that solved mu problem. The plant seems to be happy now.
