    Default Orchids in my Garage - part 1

    This is what I see as I walk into my garage/in-door orchid room. The fan on the right is on 24/7.

    Mostly paphs on the first two trays. I love multiflorals, parvis and their hybrids.

    The big one on the right is Paph. Mt. Toro with mutiple growths. Those 'unhappy-looking, soon-to-be composts' phrags are in front of my Agraecum.

    Disclaimer: Please do not ask me about some technical questions such as light intensity, foodcandles as I have no idea. If they like it, they will grow and should grow. If they do not, they should not stay.... lol.

    Default Orchids in my garage - part 2

    The Vanda house ( aka the Vanda City ) is completely full. It is constructed with PVC pipes and its measurements are 44"H x 76"W x 36"D. It is wrapped around with shower curtains so that the water I spray every morning will stay inside and keep the humidity inside between 60-70%.

    Hmm, just a few plants there. What do you do for air circulation?

    Cathy, seeing is believing. When you come to Portland this spring, you need to stop by.

    I have a fan on 24/7. During summer, when the temparature gets higher, the hot air produced by the HID units is controlled to push out of the room by the temparature sensor unit.
