    It's full of sheaths and buds. I need to get it staked so it will look fantastic.

    Jeff, from the looks of it, your greenhouse must get good light all day long... or you just have a green thumb with your catts or something.... they look way better than great!!!!! Thanks for the peek into your greenhouse.

    With the exception of some early morning and late evening shade it's sun all day. Thanks for the compliment. My "chids" are well spoiled.

    While I love what I have and realize it isn't the best for growing catts and not to be "envious" of what others have, I sure wish my greenhouse had a better location.....good for you.

    I water my catts weekly in the winter and twice weekly in summer. For fertilizer I use 20-20-20 and alternate with 30-10-10 for growth in the warmer months and a bloom booster type in the winter months. Fertilizer is applied weakly weekly and usually the day after I water.

    I spray them separately. Too many chemicals mixed together may burn your plants.
