    I am careful to avoid knowing what my heating bill is -I have a gas-fired boiler, and hot-water radiators - just the same as ( in UK ) conventional house heating , but although it is a separate boiler, my gas bill ( or electric bill too, for that matter, when I am running 4 x 400 watt lamps in the winter ) is one bill covering both house and greenhouse.
    Domestic bliss - no accusations about the cost of my hobby - who can possibly say what it is ....

    But then I don't complain or even ask what my wife spends on her hobbies....

    Sherene, I never use coconut husk when mounting, if the plant is healthy and in has good root growth I normally just tie it on as is, however if the plant looks a little weaker I may tie it with some spaghum.

    Thanks Gavin, "banyak kerja di pejabat untuk di selesaikan, lah ni baru nak bernyawa sikit", great job, I wish more species/primary hybrid will come to your house after this.
