    Default Orchid friendly plants

    Hello everyone. I would like some suggestions, especially from those colleagues growing in a green house. I would like suggestions of "orchid friendly" plants to keep under the shelves (on the floor) for 1) help increase moisture in greenhouse 2) help absorb run off water. With the water conservation deal and all, rather than to let it run to the floor drains. Is it a good idea or not? right know I have about 1/4" gravel about 1" thick on the ground.

    Exactly what I would have suggested - I grow these plants as well. The gravel suits them fine.
