However, I know little about taking care of orchids. What do I need to know? What species would do...

    I did some digging around to try and find an identification myself to no avail. I'm hoping that someone will be able to give me a positive ID on this plant. I found it in the woods near where I live on a recently downed tree branch. I assume that it is a type of orchid. I mounted this section...

    I am planning to build a Peru biotope tank that houses 2 imitators. I have already found some nice ferns orchids and creepers that grow in Peru. But so far the only bromeliad that I found is the neoregelia tarapotensis. I wonder if you guys can help me find some more bromeliads that grow in...

    OK, so another orchid show to report. This one is in North San Diego County at the San Diego Botanical Gardens (FKA Quail Botanical Gardens) in Encinitas. It's a small show and heads up, you do have to pay for entrance into the show/gardens. Although, I believe they offer student and military...

    I finished planting my first production living wall model last night and wanted to share it here :). This is all a part of my green tech startup and my goal to bring something living to everyone's desk/work space. Miniature living walls don't really exist so I thought I'd create an easy way for...

    Here it is, all finished! For those of you who are antsy scroll down to the bottom and see the final result, or take your time and read the log. I know it's not as technical or as fancy as what's been posted before, but I'm sure you all can at least appreciate the work put into it. Either way...

    I have an Orchid and the last flower just fell off. Do I need to cut off the spike that all the flowers were on? Or do more blooms grow on the same one?
