    okay dokey, consider my vocabulary updated. Am now off to look at pictures of catt growths and new roots, to try and work out what is growing out the bottom of the flowering growth on one of mine.

    Either a root or a new growth. New growths will come up from the base of the most recent growth. Post a pic and let's have a look!

    Maybe yours is looking for some humidity?



    Oh, and if I want an orchid house I have to build it MYSELF!!!!
    Maybe, but the humidity stays arount 60- 80+% here in spring/summer/fall, and inside over the winter it never dropped below 45% (fish tanks in the room!). Still, it may be easier to keep humidity higher with wet ground under the orchid in their new house. I'll keep trying!

    you are not the only one Steven - I would need to build one myself too... Mr Kerry just doesn't seem to be too interested

    Thanks Fren and Tami for answering question regarding sheaths
    Yeah, buddy!!!! We had a fog the other morning and you could here the orchids sighing from inside the house! Maybe Mr. Kerry needs a Big Green Egg as inticement: worked for me! and I get great food from the chef too!

    I'd never heard of a big green egg before this forum, and I'm kind of wondering what they actually are? Is it a barbeque? an outdoor grill?

    Maybe I should try your suggestion Tami, although I have to admit that the garden is fairly small and the big green egg and the greenhouse may have a turf war!
