On the Media – Part 2 – July 15, 2014
- We’ll be ordering in several types of orchid plugs for you to go home with – the experiment is that we’ll have several types of orchid media for you to pot your plants in. Potting each plant in a different media (that should work best for your environment) we’ll see how each one does in the long run. – 7pm, Ambridge Event Center
