    Personally I think a snake or two would add to the beauty and ambiance.

    Thanks Pavel for considering the beauty and ambience. lol. But the idea is a big no no no!. The posts on hear are bad enough with their experiences with snakes. BDs most recent was chilling to the bone when it fell out of a Catt pot.

    Default Heaven at 7. Working in alliance with the Sun.

    Just an update to show an example of the sunlight @ roughly 6.30 am-7am in the morning till about 1.30 -2pm that my orchids recieve for their wellbeing. East facing with partial south is an ideal location for general orchid growing. After 12noon in the afternoon when the sun is getting at full force only the vanda, papilonanthe?, catts, ctsm, cycno and tillandsia worship this intensity. The phals,paph, dendo, stans and others have had their fix when the sun was weaker earlier on and would suffer gone 12 noon if exposed to the direct rays. Abit of planning goes along way. The 2 pics are the first thing I see when I open my eyes in the morning. Heaven.
