    I'll have one of each of the 2nd and 4th on the first post! The others are lovely too but I have to be picky as I am out of space

    Really beautiful blooms and yes, potted orchid plants are a lovely way to brighten a room!

    As Bench72 put it, "I am out of space." I've got lots; not as many some on this forum, I'm sure, but lots. Mostly phal's and I'm going to sort through them as they spike out and get rid of plants that "look" similar because I'd like to try my hand at other genera and just don't have the room....I wish I had the room of my old 16 x 20 GH. I built it from scratch using inulated doorwall glass and treated timber. This gives lots of room to bench and hang plants...now I have a 8 x 15 aluminum structure... and no room to have put up a larger GH

    You know BikerDoc, your greenhouse looks much like I envisoned it would, neat, tidy, everything in its place and most of all beautiful just like your plants. Your passion for orchids is obvious and I am envious as all get out! LOL

    The GH came with a 15,000 Btu electric heater (red box to the right). Wanting a backup heater and natural gas is cheaper in Michigan, I purchased a 20,000 Btu NG vent-free heater with blower to use as the primary heat source and the electic is my backup. Both have separate thermostats. The NG heater is what is called "blue flame" and is available at either of the big box stores or online for about the same price. There is a 30,000 Btu NG unit available but it is twice as wide and for me just was too big.
