    Default Hanging space shortage

    I think I need to add some more wires to hang things on. The 26 new Ascda plants has used up the available areas. Over the Paphs is not a good idea either.

    Here is a suggestion.
    Try making two rows instead of one. More bang for your buck, plus, you can buy more orchids.
    But nice set up. Looks so neat, I should organize my growing space

    Since I am tall, I would raise those orchids up and add another pipe like Jay suggests. Your greenhouse is so well organized. Nice work Roy!

    Cheers,

    Beautiful and well organised grow area Roy ! I love it. Over the paphs is really not a very good idea, but if you are watering and spraying in the morning and if you have a lot of air movement and ventilation, then it is fine. As long as the water on the paph foliage dries up in a few hours it should just do fine. Even considering viruses, I don't think there are any viruses that can cross infect vandas and paphs, fungii could be a problem though. But with bareroot vandas drying quickly, I really don't think that would be a problem either. So to put it in a simple way, let it be as it is LOL, its wonderful !!

    Thanks for the comments and suggestions, all will happen eventually. Just to the space problem, a bloke who imports flasks of Phallies, Catts etc from Taiwan, Thailand and China has over stocked. I couldn't resist and bought 3 flasks of Phal m/clones. $22, $25, & $33 all contain a minimum of 10 plants. One I think has 15 plants.
