    Wink The "Corner Jungle"

    Back when I began using the nickname "cjcorner"...back when I got my first puter...it was because my desk was in the corner. But now that I have the new "corner jungle" on the back porch it has taken on new meaning. I have half a mind to get a sign made that reads CjCorner's Jungle and hang it out back. I go back on the porch and sit there staring at the plants. It's the most relaxing place in my yard. I am forever rearranging and inspecting for changes...I hope you all will share a few pictures of your "jungle" areas too.

    Several of my mini vandas needed repotting, so about two or three months ago I put them on logs. The logs are propped inside metal hanging baskets. They get almost full sun, and from the looks of the new roots coming out, they like their corner of the jungle.

    ...a couple of my "native" orchids. (purchased not collected) Epidendrum Nocturnum and Encyclia Tampense...and to the far left Epidendrum Stamfordianum.

    The jungle is primarily turning into a vanda haven. This is the no name red Mokara from a roadside vendor. Since repotting it and moving it to the jungle corner it has doubled in height and grown a huge new root.

    As you can see, I have filled my corner with all kinds of plants. The only thing missing is a nice rocking chair to enjoy the view from.
    Okay...your turn. I hope you all will add a few from your jungles...

    I don't know, Connie - if you put a rocking chair out there, it would probably start growing roots, too!!

    What a spectacular corner you have developed - I can tell the orchids really like it, too!

    Connie, so beautiful. Envious of your garden of eden. Looks like your vandas get some shade. I thought they had to have full sun so i have been afraid to try them. Again thanks for sharing your jungle paradise with us.

    Vandas need "dappled sunlight" like you would find under a tree. Bright but indirect....

    That's such a beautiful corner!!! You've managed to capture a piece of our jungle, Connie. I especially love the first picture with the sunlight streaming through the leaves - just like morning in our jungles.

    I like your 'corner jungle' Connie. I wish I could still be growing orchids outdoors like that
