>My plants are lucky that they came to a household of someone who likes to create stuff from nearly everything at hand.
Two of my orchids were in need ASAP of new small pots, but I did only have standard sized ones. What to do? Search the household for raw material. And lo:
One pot made from the lower part of a small plastic Cola-bottle (sawed off and added airholes in underside with my trusty dremel – might need some more at the side)
One pot made by sawing a plastic “glass” right through, also adding airholes and protecting the slightly sharp and ragged rim with tape.
The latter plant could need some helping thoughts, too. It is in a very bad shape.
Today unearthed once more due to stability issues in pot-construction. Rotting has not yet stopped, more root-material had to be removed. There are some newer wholesome root-stumps growing, but I do not know if they are on time still, so to speak. I fear the prognosis goes down… *pats the pot and tries to cheer up the plant*
In the meantime, two other orchids snuck their way into my heart and onto my windowsill:
This patterned Phalaenopsis Philadelphia
and this miniature(?) Hybrid Sogo Gotris (which will probably reach normal size)
And I made the stem of a new subsection of my website. A place to babble on about my greenery.*g* The Ivorytower’s Garden
