Weather report and random picture

Paphiopedilum Greyi 'Fritzie Sherwood' x niveum 'Pristine Snow' - Flower photo by Richard LindbergIt was a dark and stormy night. Two of them, actually, with 4 hours of power outage during the day yesterday. I learned that I need to change my watering timer batteries.

The automatic timers are off now, probably until the end of March. I can run it manually and augment with the pump sprayer. There will still be some warm days but I have learned that watering needs to taper off, even for the plants that need even moisture. They are not using as much water now.

I have a bunch of Paph seedlings that have not grown well. I don't know what they need exactly, but it is different from what they are getting. They need more light, no doubt about that.
