How is your bark?
We all know that summer is a good time to repot.
One of the big problems we are having is the quick breakdown of the orchid bark.
The bark today is softer and is often infected with snow mold. As the name implies, the bark becomes whitish in color and the fungus smothers the orchid roots.
The solution is to repot more often, purchase only new bark or use pine bark, and store the open bags of bark in a covered dry area. Having stable orchid media is one of the keys to successful orchid growing.
