    Wow wow! Your plants are growing so well and healthy! Those cymbs appear to relaly like your grow area so much that they grow so fast!

    Sooner or later when you start dividing and propagating them. LOL!

    Too bad cymbs are such huge plants and I live so far away or else I'll start dropping by and start asking you for some of your divisions! LOL! Hmmm .... on second thought, I don't and cannot grow cymbs here in my grow area because of my limited space - they won't fit ... even a single plant will eventually grow into a monster size in no time and besides these need high light requirements.

    This will be a great shade house for vandas. Just make sure that you have plenty of regular plants underneath them to increase humidity since Vandas love that.

    I don't think I would have any problems filling the bottom up

    Marissa, I would like to know if you used conduit as the poles and what connectors you used?

    I will keep you guys posted.
    WOW! just awesome!!
    I wish I could do the same thing. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to build anything without HOA permission. In our case we have to build hurricane-proof construction which makes it even more difficult. This is why I keep most of my orchids on my patio.

    I think I can get away with it with my HOA as it is "temporary"
