    Just wanted to share with everyone what I use to water my orchids and plants. I use a stainless steel shower nozzle/water breaker. It gives out very fine water sprays and is very soft and gentle on the leaves and flowers.

    Photos post the way they are loaded. You can rotate your photos before uploading using the photo editor found here: Image Editor for OrchidTalk - OrchidTalk Orchid Forums - Grow Orchids!

    I use a similar setup in our greenhouse as your nossel. I have one that allows me to do the 'shower' type spray and can be adjusted to a very fine, sharp, spray that I use to remove and surface pests (like power washing - ).

    Cheers,

    I use that same wand and nozzle. It works very well. I also have a misting nozzle that I like too.
