    As much as I love the idea of having a swimming pool, if I was allowed to do something like that to it... I would do the same! AWESOME!

    Mikael, that really is amazing - really like it. Just one question, we have the same type of floor and we have a lot of problems keep the moss down, it gets very slippy - how do you keep this problem down? And how big is it?

    Here is an old picture of our greenhouse: More plants have found their way, and the back wall is completely covered with mounted plants, and those old plants have also grown bigger...



    Add: I love all your growing areas. I am so green with envy, particulare you lucky people from the south - how much I would love to be able to grow orchids without all sort of devices...

The 2 Phals hanging above will go outside on the roof in early summer when they are done blooming.

    Hi Karen,

    If you are in Denmark and have a greenhouse full of orchids like that, you are indeed doing very well and certainly a certified orchid addict. (Just kidding!)
    We all make do with what we have. The important thing is having fun with the orchids. What a fabulous hobby!

    Cheers. Hoa.

    No seriously, that is a title I am proud to wear Aint we all addicted. Actually I feel like the orchids are not running my life as much now as before the greenhouse. Growing inside means a lot of compromises (eg "where is the dinner table"), so after loosing a second dinner table to the orchids I realised we needed a greenhouse

    I like this thread, so many beautiful ways of growing orchids.

    Happy weekend to all

    Hi Karen.

    About my floor. I wash it from time to time thats all. There is algeae on it but mostly in the summer of course. I just tace a rough broom and take it of with water.

    Greeting to you "neighbour" and to all of you orchidfanatics.
    Here are a pic for you all.
    It reads: Orchid Addicts Anonymous. Was made for me by a fellow orchid adict in Sweden. No names

    We do the same, but it really is messy, we have even tried to clean it and spray with chlorine, to keep it away, at least for a while. But I guess that just mean we have a good air humidity

    Nice handy craft, I guess to motto might be "please give me ability to grow orchids, the power to distinguish between what I can and can not grow, and the strength to stay with what I can grow"...

    That is very good, Karen. I might use it for a gift for the Christmas gift exchange at our local orchid society next year if you don't mind me stealing your words.

    feel free to use as you please, just check the grammer etc fist, english is not my native language... I am so flattered, this is almost better than been called a certified orchid addict

    I am sure there could be many other mottos for OAA... so bring them on
