    So glad I discovered this thread. Can't believe I missed it originally. First of all your collection and displays are fantastic! Secondly and most important is that I have learned so much from just lookng at your photos and of course reading the posts--especially your replies. Am definately going to try the soda bottle trick. Perhaps you could do a step by step instructional thread with photos to help all of us who plan to try this method. Great Job! Thanks you so much for this. Your blooms and plants are beautiful Sincerely, Bill

    First of all Bill, I hope your coffee didn't go cold, like mine, reading this long post. It was riveting reading, wasn't it. Yesterday, I commenced the regime of Matt's (trying not to hijack your spot, Matt), 2 little Onc. alliance orchids. They are in their nice little plastic bottles, hanging under a shady tree (Is this OK Matt)?

    Default Attempt at photography in an arty mode with those cyms

    These plants inflorescences certainly steal the show.

    many thanks! for the great feedback Bill!!!Always appreciate feedback and constructive crit, as this is the only place I get to share my hobby with likeminded peeps. can be abit isolating at times, noone I know likes gardening/ plants let alone orchids. I can pretty much pre determine the reaction I would get if I chose to justify a smile on my face being put down to a rot victim bouncing back in all its glory. lol.

    I hope others who get inspired with the pop/soda bottle achieve good results despite the vast variations in our indiv grow environments. It will be a challenge with a rubbish mobile phone cam to submit a photo journey of the method but will try my best. As with previous uploaded pics of blooms/display only 1/100 shots are actually worth the effort. But heres hoping!

    It is a wonderful concept that the forum is strongly supported with banter, opinions, debate, experience and advice. It helped me a great amount even pre registered so its vital to reciprocate.

    The Matt, the temp. here today is going to reach 28 deg. celc. (82 F.), I have at the moment 2 bottles hanging in shade of tree. With little sun under there. Do you think I should move these to the shadehouse, which is covered with 50% shadecloth, or leave them where they are. Is the function of this exercise to create more humidity inside the bottle?
