    Oh NO! You must do something about that! An empty green house?? LOL! Hope you get lots to fill it over the years!

    BTW, did you notice the big cattleya Diane put up on OrchidBids? Right now it looks like someone is going to win it for 6 dollars when it is easily worth five or six times that if you were to find it from a vendor. It might as well have a huge FREE sign hanging over it. I am fairly certain it would love its new home in a green house!

    Cheers!

    I do have a 4 bulb division of this tibicinis http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...ead.php?t=5276 if you would like it Sake. You just have to PM me your address, and I'll help you start filling your greenhouse with a little donation! Also, I will be doing that mount over the weekend, so if any bulbs come loose I'll throw them in. Just let me know

    Default Moster Mount Update

    Ok, well I finally built up the courage, and strength to conquer this task. All it took was a chainsaw, and some pliers! Either way though... it is finally done. Of course you just can't get an appreciation for the size of it with a picture, but hey... I tried. The only thing is... with it being attached to the half of palm tree it now weighs about 100 pounds. Give or a take ten pounds! Enjoy

    Ah, you guys got me all wrong! I work at a nursery and share the production greenhouse with a developmentally disabled dude and an old lady growing perenials and tomatos, so its not like I own the whole thing... I could only be so fortunate!

    However! I have secured a nice area that gets high/intermediate light, about ten feet away from one of the waterwalls. I have all my mounts in there, so they know Im not stealing any of the potted semi typical orchids I sell in the retail greenhouse.

    Im totally down to get a div! Ill take a tally on neat things I have at work and let you know what is what and you can have your pick!

    Access to a greenhouse is better than owning one yourself - much less expensive!

    I can't help but recall the stories I've heard here from folks in similar situations who've had their personal plants stolen from commercial greenhouses, however! Hope yours are safe, Sake!

    Ive posted a few stories about some of my Aerangis species being sold or stolen. Ive since moved them where no one goes. Except the developmentally disabled person and the old lady, neither of which know how to pronouce Dendrochillum..
