Hi and thanks for adding me to your community forum! My name is Marianna and I live in the country near the city of Florence. I usually grow vegetables and flowers outside in my garden, and I have grown orchids indoor for 10 years, trying different cultivation methods and "styles", so I'm not exactly a newbie in matter of Ph measuring, EC, TDS, and passive hydro. When I moved to my new home I had to reduce hugely my orchid collection, because of a lack of space, but the presence of the garden outside has allowed me to grow tomatoes, eggplants and other wonderful plants. Sadly now fall is coming and my plants are struggling to their end, so I ordered an Aerogarden (Harvest) to keep growing something during the following freezing and grey months. Forgive me if I don't write and I read only, but I'm trying to learn as much as I can from your posts, while I'm waiting for my Harvest to arrive. Have a nice day/night!
Hi Marianna! Glad you are on board. I am not really into orchards..that would be Orangetabbys. I only have 1 plant. But I love to plant outdoors in my raised garden beds in the spring/summer/early fall season here in New England

I think its safe to say moffy would be the orchid pro here! I have 7 and sometimes we struggle. Happy to say my very first one (cannot remember how old... 5yr ?) Has just grown a flower stem so excited to see her happy yellow flowers again. Glad to have another orchid lover to pick the brain of though!
Orchids can be very tricky to grow and are also veeeeery slow growing plants if compared to vegetables or herbs...I usually say they are slow even at passing away!!! So, growing also something that promptly reacts to the cares you give is a bit more rewarding in terms of patience and quick results.
