We had a great weekend and met some interesting, lovely people, who made us feel very welcome. well done to the Writhlington Orchid team.
congratulations, lovely initiative! I am a teacher in a technical school in Italy, and I would be grateful if you could share some information about your general setup: which and how many laminar flow hoods you have, your greenhouse, if you mix your own media, or you buy them ready, and so on.
Silvio a Beccara
Hi Silvio, thanks for your interest. We have three flow hoods that allows us to do class experiments and propagation work. Our greenhouse is 20m x 10m and is divided into five sections we call warm asia, cool asia, warm americas, cool americas and temperate to allow us to grow a wide variety of species successfully (around 800 species). We used to ix our own media but now use half strength Phytamax maintenance media with 25g agar in 4 litres of water and pH adjusted to 6
