Size:  131.4 KB I grow my orchids outside on my patio nearly 24/7. Only When the outside temp goes below 55F then I bring my orchids inside, which is not very often. I have 35 orchids including Vandas which are hung on an arbor on my patio. The other orchids are in pots on flower stands.

    Looks like you got plenty of room there for more plants.

    Very pretty, Gabriela - I agree with Pavel - LOTS of room for new orchids! I envy you the outside patio - our deck is pretty small and not at all appropriate for hanging things (although you never know - orchid addicts can get very creative about space!

    Very nice tropical patio! It looks like you're a lot more organized than I am.
