A tip for anyone who is interested!!

I have a cattleya and I've noticed that the leaves were scaly and always looked dirty. So I decided to try something called fruit and vegetable wash FIT. And it worked.
So if you guys want to try it go ahead and you will like the results. Plus it has all natural ingredients.

Just today I swabbed down all my phal leaves with some Pharmsolutions (cinnamom, orange oil, cottonseed oil, to name a few ingredients) just to get the leaves all clean and shiny. Figured it couldn't hurt as a prevention also. Was a lttle bit of work tho, sounds like the FIT worked well for our hard water deposits. I'll try it next time!

I have some of that, and my well water here is hard. My Phals have water spots on them that make them unsightly.

Thanks Sea Sun88

Is that the stuff you wash veggies with from the grocery store?

You might also try lemon juice or milk.
