    Default My new green house expansion in progress

    Hi ! Due to my ever growing orchid collection, I am expanding my Greenhouse. My current greenhouse is 600 sq. ft. now with two new greenhouses, my total grow area will be 1200 sq. ft. The shade shown is constructed with galvanised steel and painted white. Toughened UV resistant Poly-carbonate sheets are used, they are costlier than glass, but have better strength and heat reflective capacity. Soon the shade cloth will be added and so will be the insect netting along the sides. I will add the pictures as the construction progresses.

    I like it now when it is still empty, I can imagine how beautiful will be, once the orchids will be inside

    adopt me please! I love it. I hope you will share photos of your water gardens in the water garden forum here. I did not know you raised those flowers also. Looks like you have several.

    Congratulations on the expansion! Double the space means you can quadruple your collection in no time. hahaha... I look forward to the updates as construction progresses.

    Cheers,

    Very nice, I am sure it will look wondeful once your plants are inside the greenhouse! I can see the Bonsais on the bench, Ixora, Ficus, Curry leaf plant, etc in the background too!

    I will have to get back to you after asking my parents LOL. My parents have really taken a big undertaking. I will be leaving for Bremen, Germany for my PhD. on the 28th of Nov. Then my Mom will be supervising all the garden work, I have trained my gardener for the past month and made her orchid friendly LOL. Its now dawning on me that apart from my Parents, family and pets I will be really missing all my plants !
