Hi PR4D,

 

such a nice collection you have. Your orchids look good. Nice flower spikes.

Phalenopsys with deep pink large flowers and only one leaf left, may need some care. But I don't see any need for panic. Try re-potting after the flower spike is done. While re-potting, see if roots are rotting and dropping of. Avoid over watering. See google search results for Youtube. Some excellent videos on orchid care, watering, repotting etc.

Hello PR4D,

 

Its a lovely garden and great to see such healthy plants. Am just identifying some of your plants:

- the plant with magenta coloured leaves is 'coleus'

- the plants with big thorns is 'euphorbia mill'

- your magical roses seem to be a variety of 'impatiens' itself, cause of the leaves and the little stalk under the flowers/buds.

 

If I could ask your help on something- can you tell me what supplements do you give to your impatiens cause mine are shrivelling up.

@Camaroon - Thanks 🙂

@anandarajkumar - Thanks - I'll send you a PM

@ Spurthi - Thanks so much for naming them, Sadly I got rid of the Coleus. It kinda grew like a weed.
I'm not a great fan of the Euphorbia Mill except for the ones with small flowers so I moved the four of them to the ground floor for anyone to pickup.
And yes I researched and found out that those were double impatiens. Sadly I got rid of them all as they were attacked by spider mites. My father in law has several plants so I'll pick up new ones from him.
Quite honestly I don't understand nutrients really well. I'm blindly using the ones that I bought from GG. PM him and you could buy some of the nutrients from him. Hope this helps.
I've seen mine shrivel up due to - too much sun and they hate insecticidal soap sprays

My attempt at nurturing orchids in chennai are pathetic if at all it flowers the spikes are very small with 6-7 flowers.

Is it the weather here or I am doing something wrong?
