    That’s incredible! It looks like a tropical botanical garden. It must have taken an incredible amount of work. Good job.

    Very nice setup... I assume the plants are watered via drip irrigation then... Or does the water come out as a mist to thoroughly moisten the mounts?

    Hi Lika! Your epiweb pillars are exactly what I have been designing in my head- a spongy plastic textile covering a pillar or a wall, drip watered from above out of a reservoir underneath- AND HERE IT IS! You actually have it in Sweden already!

    And your greenhouse is perfect!

    Wonderful.

    I remember when Lika first posted her story and photographs. Everything she and her husband have done is extraordinary to say the least. Their adaptations and hard work have overcome every obstacle. I am glad that this post continues and I hope Lika gets back on the OrchidTalk Forum more often. AL
