    Red face Here it is...

    Don't laugh at my cramped little space. I know that all my orchids are pretty much all over the place and hanging on each other, but this area gets bright indirect light and even morning sun.

    I have to keep them all up high, mostly on the south & west side, so the afternoon sun doesn't burn them alive. I have a burlap screen on the west side to shade the ones on the ground. It works but can be a hassle to maneuver around sometimes when I have things to carry in/out.

    Enjoy....

    East Railing (There is also a Desert Rose and Jatropha on that side):


    Sitting in the cover of my Jatropha podagrica (Buddha Belly) are 5 orchids nestled in:



    Looking at the east side from outside the porch:

    Okay that's all I have for now. Hope it wasn't too chaotic for you!

    WOW, I love your growing patio, Shann! It looks amazing and your plants look so healthy. I love your collection as far as the species you have, the sizes of your plants ... You have done such a fantastic job at organizing everything.
    Very impressed and jealous (in a friendly way) of your orchid patio.
    Thanks for the picture tour!
