    first up, two forms of tanks, the second being much smaller and nodding quite devoutly...
    next, a few phals that are tacked to the sides of hanging baskets and therefore very difficult to photograph... nearly dropped my phone off the balcony trying to get these pics

    and last up is just a pic of one of my crazy planting adventures that always seem to happen when im drunk... this used to be full of gingers but i yanked them out and created a layer of tree fern fiber, stuck a few of my bulbos on top as well as moving my vanilla on over, the bulbos love it, havent flowered yet but been growing like crazy since last summer... the vanilla has only been there for about a month but doesnt seem to mind the move at all...

    Lovely Collection Shane. Must be quite an eyeful when seen all together.

    Deal with that scale as a matter of urgency.

    it is indeed! one of the primary reasons for me never wanting to leave here... oh and i guess jeffrey, too.... nah it's really the orchids that keep me here!! (just joking)
    ...and not to rub it in... but all my phals, except for the yellow harlequin type, are from the garbage! just find them on the side of the streets once theyve been thrown out after shop openings and celebrations... i hardly ever buy a phal unless it's species or something unusual that i just ant to have
