    This is my usual placement of these orchids and they seem to enjoy this section of the Green house towards the back wall. Notice that the third one over from the left side of the photo is Oncda. Charlesworthii 'Mishima'. This is a neat hybrid that has bloomed four times this year so it has become something of a standard bearer in my orchid collection. I wish they all could do this!

    lovely collection Al, I have just started to hang some of my orchids on tree branches which I cut, I am right now thinking of trying to hang a Phal that I have in a plastic pot where I am trying to get it back up to a beautiful plant once again (suffered some root rot) there are beautiful roots emerging and so I think I will use the tree mount and see how it grows like in the natural places.

    Your group probably likes that wall due to all the wood. Plants that normally look underwatered or stressed do very well when placed over a dirt floor that holds the moisture, or next to wood. That wall holds moisture releasing it as humidity giving your plants that little extra boost. Your set up looks very nice...and although the oncids are nice, your Renanthera is stealing the show back there. lol
