It hit the roof of the greenhouse, and then went sideways! Anyhow, the greenhouse is a little large for just one picture. But you thought BD had a tangle of roots! There are some spots in my greenhouse that you can't walk with out having a rope attached!
    Aaron, I am so glad to see your jungle. It makes my root tangle seem, well, manageable. LOL!

    Beautiful. More please...

    Cheers!

    As you can tell by now I don't spend much time collecting little things! I prefere huge plants that give a sense of ahh, even more so when they are in bloom!

    Hi Mehera,
    Beautiful growing area.
    I notice you have a couple of oncidium papilio(psychopsis) growing beautifully. I have one that is spiking for the first time. I live in NY and have it outside in my garden. I had 2 spikes but one got broken off from the misplaced water sprinkler. Nothing looks like a flower yet on the remaining spike. The top looks a bit dry now or prehaps an insect chewed a bit. Not sure. Was wondering if you could tell me what I can expect to happen to the spike and if there's anything I can do to hasten the bloom.

    I'm concerned that things will not go well when I have to bring the plant inside in the fall.

    Thanks for any help you can provide . Any pictures of a happening spike before the actual flowering would be wonderful too.

    Here is my small growing area outside my dining room. I wanted to give it a natural look. It is not even close to being finished. Trying to figure out my next step. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Nice growing space you have there, Bill! I cannot tell from the photos for sure, but it looks like it is enclosed? Beautiful place regardless!

    Cheers!

    It is enclosed on the top with 50% Polysomething? the sides are wood and there is a 20" open area above the wood around the structure.
    This was just a junky patio when I purchased the house. I built the planters and replaced the poly on the roof. I added a aquafog fan and a fountain. Because the air is so dry here, the open area really sucks the humidity out. I would love to completely enclose except I need to do it in a way that is visually appealing. Besides my wife won't let me spend any more money on the garden as it is. (she doesn't know about my secret Paypal account).

    LOL... I hope she doesn't read the forum then!

    Maybe you could use more poly to close up the 20" space below the roof? That would not look bad if it was framed like a window or several smaller windows. Good luck with it in any case. Keep us posted on your progress.

    Cheers!
