    Tree fern is no longer available because it is becoming "endangered". I'm not sure of the whole process, but they discourage use of it due to the fact the plants are becoming very scarce. I would love to be able to find something very like it because the orchids love it. I used to find lots of it in my big floofies....lately I don't see it anymore.
    By the by....I am so wishing I had a sweet green house to pamper my chids in. You all with those lovely structures are so lucky. Yours is so neat and clean....great job. I loved the phalaenopsis growing roots like a vanda on that mount. What on earth do you do to keep the roots like that?? How often do you water a phal on a stick?? And the spanish moss, great idea. Does it help with humidity??

    Hi Connie,

    During the past couple of months I only had to water the plants in the greenhouse every two weeks. It has been quite cold and there was no need to water heavily.
    Every morning I would see condensation everywhere in the greenhouse and the mounties roots are all moist.
    So for now, the mounties do not get any extra watering compared to the rest of the plants.

    For summer, I have an inexpensive (although temperamental) mister setup that is hooked up to a timer to maintain the humidity in the greenhouse.

    As for feeding, I have switched to balanced 20-20-20 formula year round for my orchids in the greenhouse (see a previous post I had regarding "Orchid Detox").
