Whats the diference?
Hello Orchid Lovers, I jumped across the way from the cacti and succulent site to ask for your expertise, Now it might of been asked before but I have a Epidendrum orchid known as the "Poormans Orchid".
When I've taken cuttings from one plant the blooms were about the size of a softball and now about 2 1/2 years later the blooms are still producing however they are only about the size of a hard ball (again baseball size.)
I would really like to see them increase in size and so far I've tried everything but Orchid mix since I was told this type grew like wild fire and just simply by a piece falling off and onto the ground would do the trick, Huh! not in my garden.
I have one in a large pot about 20gallon size and I've mixed cactus mix, pine tree bark, perilite and compost mix and still no growth not to mention full sun for about 6-7 hours a day.
Any help or comments would be appreciated much.
