    Default Orchid House. 6 months since last post

    Taken today. The structure on the left is a temp' shadecloth area for the Paphs. Saves putting S/cloth over the house and blocking light on orchids that need it. It will come down in a month or so.

    No sprinklers, power cable & pipe for hanging plants from.
    Watering is done by Manuel Labour.

    Very neat and tidy orchid house. Must be very laborious for Manuel to water those vandaceous hanging at the top.

    Roy,
    I appreciate how neat and clean your benches are. So often we do not resist and buy too many plants for the grow area. Your plants all have growing room and room for air to surround them. It is so much easier to really inspect your plants this way also.
