Maxime,
Your Ueli Wackernagel looks great, I was wondering about buying this pleione but wanted the white form, but now I see your picture of the pink form I think she will be on my list for next year!

Well done Slug !
Very nice pot and healthy flowers !

Do you grow all of them in bark  and is moss only for picture ?

Hi, my main mix is melcourt potting bark and perlite, I don't bother with moss myself as I don't see and difference in the results ??? I do however use some fresh moss from the garden for photo's as it gives a better background and it also brings the yellow out which is sometimes difficult under certain light conditions.

Taken with black background today instead of moss.

Latest to bloom - Rakata "Rock Dove" which is unlike any other other Rakata and always flowers early.

Very surprised to hear Dave"s comments on not using moss with Forrestii ,as I have found it very difficult to grow with even 50% moss mixture  and now use 100% in open baskets where it grows and multiplies well. Many other species like Aurita ,Humilis and Hookeriana I find very difficult too without a high moss content.

Lovely Rakata, not seen that one before.

I've tried all sorts of medium over the years and bark, perlite, little peat works best for me even on praecox and maculata. All do very well as long as they are watered sufficiently and a good Orchid feed is used during leaf.

I use the same compst : 50/50 bark and perlite and found it very good since 2 years.
before, I added leafs, peat, moss without better results and more work  ;)
