I've always liked Lassen Peak but always found it unreliable in my growing conditions.

Not sure this is the right place, but I've just lifted my spring flowering Pleione hybrids ready for replanting in a couple of months.

On the whole most have done well. The new ones I got less well.

I followed advice that they should go into 2.5 inch pots and I wonder if that might be too small under my local conditions. Obviously they were fed but I wonder if in the small pots they roots get too warm or the compost remains too wet or there is less available air in the compost.

The pleiones were all in pots on the greenhouse floor next to a fan - some filtered sunlight.

Any thoughts or ideas?

Hi Mark

I have grown my new ones under similar conditions in 1-L square pots. They have done well, some are slightly smaller than those from my 7-L trays, but not much of a difference. Greenhouse, 40% shade, water once a week (twice in the few warm weeks we had this summer), 10% strength inorganic tomato fertilizer with every watering, 1/3 moss  2/3 bark (0.5-2 cm). Which compost do you use?

hi Anders, it's an orchid bark, sphagnum and perlite mix - I can't remember the proportions

I think 1 L is much bigger - what is the diameter of the pots in centimetres?

Mark, you are right. My square pots are 10x10x11 cm, which is much bigger than your round 6.4 cm pots. I guess that is what makes the difference.

Catwheazle : on maculate the lip is generally quite short and in my experience, the stripes are rather pinkish than reddish (and the upper part of the yellow is not bordered by red)

thanks Anders, I thought the pots were a bit too small.

They're very cheery all right Maggi ;D 
I'm torn between bringing them indoors to enjoy briefly, or keeping them cool for longer :-\

.....................Wharfdale Pine Warbler......................

Ashley, there should be an 'e' between the 'f' and the 'd', from the River Wharfe. The river name possibly came from the Saxon word 'guerf' meaning swift (that morfed into the Old English 'weorf') or perhaps the Old Norse word 'hverfr' usually used to mean winding.
