I have a snowy growth on the bark containing my 3 Phalaenopsis orchids. The internet tells me it is quite common to have this problem.
I repotted the orchids in about September and they thrived, went away on holiday and left them in care, probably overwatered and came home to a lovely snowy potting mix!
So what do I do? I have bought new fresh potting mix and will repot but how do I get rid of the fungus on the roots?

Many thanks for your input here

Hi,
I’ve been trying to locate an indoor plant called a waxy hoya. It’s a hanging plant with with white / pinkish flowers in a round bunch.

Do you stock them or where I could find one.

Also, do you stock African Violet plants. Again something I’m finding difficult to find.

Much appreciated
Helen

Hi I have three hydrangeas in pots and have them inside. Maybe this is not a good idea but they look good where I have got them. They are not looking there best with brown leaves and leaves falling off. Maybe I have watered them too much or maybe they don’t like being inside. Help please. Jan

Hi

I purchased a Birds if Paradise plant from Palmers a few months back and have kept it as an indoor plant.

It had really thrived with several new leaves and has doubled in size. Recently the leaves have begun to curl inwards, first the newest on top and slowly the others. I did a google search which said it may be root bound so have repotted in a larger pot, but it does not seem to have solved the problem and they seem to be slowly getting worse. I can’t find anything else on google or anyone that seems to know, could it be root rot?? I have been careful not to overwater!

Thank you in advance for your help!

I just bought an indoor plant called Venus Fly Trap. It was amazing. A fly got caught and that flower is closed tightly. What do I do now? To chop that flower? or just leave it like that?

I want to introduce my Grand children to air plants. Do you stock them now or is there a certain season when they need to be planted and then you have them for sale?

Hi There,

We bought a plant from you last August and I’ve just been told it has “white scale”on it.

We are in a showroom and it has spread to our other plants too.

I was told it is treated with White Oil – would this be your recommendations and do you sell it if so?

Many thanks,

Celine

The leaves on my weeping fig are all turning brown and dry and rapidly falling off. I suspect I have probably overwatered it and it has been moved several times as I have moved house. Are leaves likely to grown on it again? Is there any chance of resurrecting it if I cut it right back to just the main stem. Thanks.

Hi! I’m hoping you can recommend some plants that would work well in a smallish Wellington bathroom. There’s one small window which doesn’t get a lot of light. Preferably something easy to take care of!

Hi . I have a large sunroom – Glass all round n roof so can imagine it gets hot !!! I want to decorate it with pots n plans and crystals and turn it into a place to relax .
Can you please recommend me the best indoor plants that like a lot of Sunlight – HOT !!and are appealing to look at . I like the idea of big plants that make a statement … ferns ..etc .
Pots can’t be hung . Ground only in corners under windows ….

Thanks …

Hiyas
I have 2 Calathea plants, I believe the Rufibarba type.
They live in my conservatory in Christchurch and aren’t looking great.
Originally I thought they could have some kind of tiny bugs, see the close-up image of the speckled looking leaf. Then I thought perhaps I was over-watering, but then I read into it more and now I’m concerned they’re getting too much light.
I’ve attached a photo of where they live, which shows where the sun goes. When it’s high they would likely get a bit of direct sun on their leaves.
I usually do so well with house plants, but I can’t seem to get it right with these. Does anyone have any advice?
Thank you in advance
Sara
