    Default my growing area and plants in bloom

    After a humid summer my orchids are doing really well! Here are some noids that haven't ever bloomed for me before. The spotted yellow flower is the first of many to open. There are two spikes loaded with buds.

    Here is the light setup my husband and brother made me for my birthday, with all of my baby orchids on it. The cattleyas in the middle are a recent purchase and are trying to get established, not much of a root system on them. The bottom shelf has my baby vandas, which are doing very well with roots climbing out of the pots! I have them in bark with a little bit of sphagnum around the sides and bottom.

    Thanks! I have about 40 orchids now and you guys really helped me get started (about 2 years ago). I'm still a total beginner but already wishing for a greenhouse. =)

    I love the design of your shelf! And what healthy little plants...maybe once I have my room I can get something set up for smaller plants.
