    You have displayed all of your orchids with a sense of coordination and not clutter. I can see (as have others) how well cared for your property is. With all these warm growing orchids, you save a lot of expense not having to heat and in some areas of the globe humidify the growing environment so much of the year. AL

    Thanks Al, the saving of expense is merely a byproduct of the environment I am in and not premeditated by any means!

    Growing spaces need to be elastic so that they can stretch ; having no walls is a distinct advantage !. Unfortunately, in a cold climate like UK, no walls would soon mean no orchids !

    Poh Hong, it will definitely be nice! But why stick to one vandaceous plant? Attach some mokaras, ascos and other hot sun vandas! The colours when they bloom will be a sight to behold!

    Geoff, I imagine your heating bill must be rather substantial?

    Beautiful grow area and home. My area is small and tight as I squeeze in many plants in my area .... well, at least that helps keeps humidity up during the hot season.
