    Default My Orchid growing area

    Here are my two stands that hold my complete collection. I used to have them back to back on the left but the right gets more sun so I moved the light lovers to the right. My wife mentioned that it looks like I have much fewer orchids now that they are split up. I'm sure that's a green light for getting more, don't you think?

    It certainly sounds like a green light to me. Very modern looking space. I like it.

    I would take it as a green light too!!! Your growing area looks great! I wonder what is the feeling of enjoying all your orchids while working?!

    Margo, any attempts at doing any work there usually turns into checking for spikes, cleaning old and dried leaves, or seeing if anything might need watering the next day.
