Hello Everyone,

I have just been informed that the contact list of one of our members has
been hacked, so please be extra vigilant when checking for spam etc.

The list has been extraordinarily quiet for some weeks now, although that
has been a good thing in a way as I have been away for most of March.
Prepare to be bombarded with lots of photos as soon as I can sort some out.

Good growing,

--

Hello Tricia − I have had an email today saying it was from Royal Mail and the postman could not deliver a parcel and to open a shipping label to see how to collect. I tried to open it, (a .zip file) and it wouldn't open. I drove to our local Royal Mail delivery centre but they had no parcel for me and warned that it could be an attempt to hack as they would never email, they put a slip thru the letter box with details. Hopefully my apple iMac has saved me as it doesnt't seem able to open .zip files.

Anyway, maybe you could warn listers of this specific threat.
Had a great display of dendrobe. nobile plants, best kitchen window sill around!

Regards, Alex Scott

I use my orchidman61 e-mail address to send out reminders to members of my walking club − and two of them have had a lot of admail, apparently sent from my address ; very strange that it is only 2 out of 60 or so email addresses I send to !.
I spent a lot of time trying to find out what to do about this, and how to do it, and really got nowhere − at least nowhere I wanted to go .

No messages from me to this group ( Orchidtalk) lately ; all the things I have in flower have been bought since my private holocaust, and it does seem like cheating to send pics of plants I have just bought !

However my change of regime has me growing Disas again ( among other things), and with the benefit of some 21st century technology plus my experience of growing them in the previous century, they do seem to be doing quite well ; a few are in spike − and I'll post a few pics, as and when. Keith Andrew tells me that early flowers are pale, and the best quality ones are the late flowers but we'll see.

Hello,

I do not currently have any .zip files in my Mac, and have not for
sometime but double clicking on the file should open the file [always
did for me], and I seem to recall that if you click on the file and then
hit the spacebar you can see inside the file. Or download Unarchiver.

I grow my Disas in NZ Sphag moss and perlite, and the water I stand them in ,is distilled water. Distilled by myself. I feed three times a year. All mine, well most, have been growing through the Winter and now have plenty of new growths. Rather early for flowering, but orchids do not read books.
Good luck Geoff.

What temperature are you growing your disas at, Peter? Mine are cold, frost
free minimum, nearly always a few degrees warmer, growing in NZ moss and
standing in tap water − only 75 ms so no problem. I feed very, very dilute
about once every three weeks. Although they have been growing throughout the
winter they are still small plants some way from flowering. Would a slightly
higher temperature be better? Could be a problem, though, as no room
anywhere else!
