Hi Thomas and others,
I must search the supermarket shelves here for canned coconut water.
It certainly shows by the picture on the can that it is from green
coconuts. Another place I might try for it is the Chinese or Asian
warehouse here. They have all sorts of unusual canned fruits like
durians and mangosteens. Might have your coconut water. Failing
that I will try in Auckland sometime which is the biggest Polynesian
city in the world. They might sell green coconuts.
I would have thought using it with charcoal would remove some of the
vital growth factors?
"Orchid propagation in vitro course"
This sounds a great way to get school kids interested in growing
orchids, Thomas! Its so hard to motivate and get young blood in
orchid clubs nowadays. A bit of simple science might be the way!
Thomas, that cross macrura x pachyura is sure going to be ugly! I'll
find something much more worthwhile for you.
Question - Restrepia striata
I have a huge Restrepia striata with a mass of leaves. I read
somewhere ages ago how to remove leaves and get new plants from under
each leaf. Can someone describe how its done please?
