    Default All windowsill growers

    Thiis is for those of us that not fortunate enough to have a glasshouse , lets share pictures and culture tips of your windowsill set up.
    This is my set up I have majority Phals some are in bloom some isn't , I'm starting to crack the window open at night and pull the curtain in front of the set up so that the temps drop and hopefully will get a few spikes by next month as we are approaching autumn. At the moment the day average is 26 celcius and 14 celcius at night. I also have two mounts suspended above the set up.
    The window is facing NE and recieves ample light because the glass is tinted I find it doesn't heat up with the midday sun but still recieves enough light to give my Phals a red/purple tinge on the underside of the leaves. I'm still waiting to get a humidifier as it can be quite dry in my room.

    This is where mine are right now. The window is a south facing balcony door. I doubt this is my final growing area - the temperature fluctuates a lot, and I am still not sure about the light or managing the humidity. It's a delight to look at though.
