    Default My modest little orchid corner.

    This is my inside grow area, I had never given it much thought till I started on this site, as my one and only orchid was an outside plant, and seemed to love it right where it was. I started this forum with one orchid, now I got a whole corner to myself and 7 orchids, not to mention the show/sale I am going to attend coming up >.> I take all my pics at night, so it always looks dark in the pics, but the room is east facing with four big windows and it gets pretty bright in here in the day time. It's currently a computer/unused workout room, but I am about to banish the heavy crap to the shed to make more room for growing and better light setups. The ones I have now work decently, but they are only temporary. I have a small 3 speed clip fan on top of a post blowing over the top of the plants, and new humidity trays when I noticed I had some drying issues. I still have my outside plants, and I plan on sending the big catt out for some morning light when it warms up a little more in the mornings here, but my phals seem to love it right were I have them. All but the one that had the fungus infection are doing great, didn't even seem to be bothered by the greenhouse to houseplant transition. That brings my collection to 3 catts and 4 phals

    Does the lighting seem sufficient for a temporary setup? They could be like this for up to 2-3 months ( and remember that the room is brighter during the day)
