    BD, the plants face the other side. The spike went through a gap in between the mounts to grow mostly at the back.

    NTGERALD: In the top picture, would you happen to know what kind of wood that the orchid is growing on? I seems to really be happy on it.
    Also, does the v. alba (also first picture) smell exactly like the pink ones?
    All of these are beautiful and the pictures are wonderful. Thank you so much for posting.
    Blessings, Rogue
