    Thanks,everyone.I have had company all weekend.Most of Phal.,all the Den. are in clay pots.The Paph.s are all in plastic tall containers.The porch really looks cool at night with 5 - citronella candles burning,if not you get eatin alive by the mosquitoes(Welcome to Florida !! ) The sideways Phal. idea was from someone on this forum,I cannot take the credit for that idea.If there is to be more additions,I would like another Blue Den. or two.Everyone here has been a great deal of help,to make my growing spaces look the way they do.THANKS TO EVERYONE !! Rich

    Default More Lights Added

    My second shelf,I have added more lights.I still have a 24" T-5 w/reflector on the ceiling.Two 65 watt spot grow lights.On the underside of the top shelf,4- 24" T-5 grow light sticks. As you can see this is where my chids are growing in water culture.I thought I would update one of my grow areas.Since I say some asking about indoor light.Take care,Rich
