    Smile Greenhouse Update and Orchid Buys

    Hey ya'll!

    We are in the home strech with the greenhouse! It's finally starting to look like I envisioned. I still have to figure out the shade cloth but here are a couple of pictures of how it's looking.

    WOW! That is so cool! You will need some shade cloth though before your orchids go in there. Love the planting area all around the outside of the greenhouse too.

    cheers,

    Thanks Bruce! I know I should hurry with the shade cloth but I'm having a hard time since I want to drape it inside instead of outside the greenhouse.

    I also already have a few problems with the new orchids, the Blue Hawaii got a case of black rot and the Vanda has some parts on the stem that have also turned black. I've been trying everything I've learned here (peroxide, alcohol, fungicide, cutting the bad parts, etc.), hopefully I can save them.

    Any particular reason why?

    Lovely looking greenhouse!

    Thanks Pavel! I just don't like how it looks with the cloth over it (kind of like buying a beautiful chair and covering it with a sheet). I think I'm going to try and set it up inside hanging from a rod, (kind of like curtains).

    Beautiful greenhouse! As far as the shade cloth, you may need to use a good old fashioned staple gun when you stretch it across the inside. Just my 2 cents.

    A very handsome greenhouse. I see you had fun shopping in Puerto Rico also. AL
