    Thanks, Paul. I haven't taken any photo for almost a year and I almost forgot how to do a Macro.

    Wade, as long as you have good water, you should give it a try. 55-80F works well for this species.

    With this foliage, I wouldn't miss the blooms. Tom, what standards must "good water" meet to grow these?

    For my definition, good water(before any fertilizer) should have less than 100PPM of TDS and the PH for most orchids should be around 6-7( preferable slightly on the acidic side). More importantly IMO it is how and how often you water them, moist, slightly dry, totally dry or wet, accordingly..., Seasonal adjustment may be necessary as well. Every species has different need...

    When I get my greenhouse built I plan on a catchment system for rainwater and a R.O. unit for the backup supply so that shouldn't be a problem. I just need to hold off on buying things until it's finished! I always said that orchids teach patience but I want this greenhouse NOW!
