Heatwaves, floods and droughts. Hottest on record. ERR not here in lovely green lush Melbourne.
Its been our coolest,mildest most pleasant summer in memory.
Not one day over 38.c here and where we are on the peninsula has been 4-5 .C cooler still.
And now in march we have had 10 glorious days in a row all around 24-30.c
This is cracka orchid growing weather. Our orchids go nuts between 18.c and 32.c and these days just keep rolling in.
For the first time ever in 17 years we have had to repot twice in one calander year.
At great expense we have been potting non stop since august.
We were ready to put off the casual potters in January, but most orchids are now putting out a third growth cycle, something ive never seen before and have been up potted twice. So still going. 09.03.2017
We have now used up over 75 tonnes of orchid mix.
So tommorow we should be finished potting and its time to start deflasking 20,000 all new seedlings and clones.
Does this never end!
