    You just keep on talking! I watch for your posts. Is your growing area large?

    I took a picture the other day looking from the greenhouse area down to the bamboo and i'd say there are about 300+ plants....but I haven't counted in a long time. I have a nice large covered back porch area and in the summer time we call it the orchid bar. The guy that built the house put in a wet bar that has become my potting bench. In the winter they go into a greenhouse that is off the back of a long garage. The greenhouse is roughly 12 x 16 feet...if I remember correctly. So yes, I have quite a lot of space at my disposal for the 'chids. And thanks...i'll keep talking. So far people on here have been very nice about my chatty-ness.

    those are great ideas to raise humidity. i have a few buckets of water under the shelf and keep my plants close together to raise humidity. sort of building a micro-climate on the balcony.

    I found that the dirt, after sitting below vandas getting watered all the time, held the water better than trays. The water in the trays seemed to evaporate much faster. If I need a couple days off from watering, the dirt provided ample moisture. After I moved here and began hanging my vanda's over dirt I began noticing they grew much better roots. You just need to remember with all that moisture you'll need to spray for fungus and bacteria.

    Now I am green with envy! But how in the world do you keep up?

    Actually, other than repotting, having this many makes it easier for me. I use the high sun plants to provide shade. And watering; well the husband enjoys getting up and watering the first time every morning for me. So unless it's hot or windy, I don't have to water every day if I don't want to. And I am basically a hermit these days so I have ample time to work with the plants. Really, unless we have company (or I have to see one of my doctors), i'm pretty much always home. I have a rather idyllic life for the most part. Oh and since you asked about it, I posted some pics of my growing area out back.

    Hi Connie,
    I have just one Nakamotoara , ( N.Joyce Hands) shown here recently. I grow it in sphagnum moss in a net pot or basket - currently have two pieces from a plant I grew large and then split up. Mine have 2 or 3 spikes every year . I think your plant may be too dry ? Not a criticism - but hopefully helpful !

    More than likely, that is why I added that little bit behind it. I cannot grow anything in sphag here, it just rots the roots. Maybe it will adapt. It has a ton of roots you cannot see running up and down the wood. Maybe i'll add a second spot of coconut fiber for it.
