    Default My growing space

    Felt inspired to share my growing space after seeing so many other on this part of the forum. I have orchids, royal poinciana seedlings, fukien tea bonsai, a sageretia bonsai, a serissa (tree of a thousand stars) bonsai, lemon, orange, lime and coffee plants. Oh and a ficus bonsai. But the orchids are my favourite You may also see on some of the pics my humidifier - adds moisture to the air and cleans it I have a fan on the other side of the room for air circulation.

    Sorry if the images look a little bright, its quite bright outside lol even with the shade down!

    Incredibly beautiful and so organized! It looks like you take very good care of your plants. I have never tried to grow a coffee tree. I should give that a go too.

    Cheers,

    Lol thats the only organized part of my house. I'm moving, so everything else I own is strewn about everywhere lol.

    Having a dirty space for plants really bugs me, so I move everything once a week, clean the windows and surfaces and put everything back Helps cut down on fungus and bacteria The coffee is very slow growing lol. And it won't produce beans that taste nice as I don't have the altitude Its nice though

    Hi Joe,
    I like your growing space. It looks very well lighted.
    Your plants look great, too. I love your blooms.....very pretty. They sure do set things off nicely. What is the clear, glass looking ball?

    Anyway, I just wanted to compliment you.
    Vicki

    Did I just get called Joe? I'm Dan lol. Guess I have been called worse

    The clear ball is my humidifier. It has something revolving inside to clean the air and increase the humidity. Have to change the water every day or two - its gross what comes out of the air. All mucky and cloudy!
