    Default Shadehouse 2 - Begonias, Phal Species and Catt Species

    The vanda baby species are growing like weeds. My phal species are doing well. I still have my doubts on if I can grow them or not? I not only grow orchids, but I grow begonia and gesneriad species. There is a shot of some catts and laelias ...these are mainly species.I've left them in the shadehouse as many are mounted. I've moved many out on to the lanai. That is a big MESS! I will post pictures once it is cleaned up.

    I'm mounting all my phals too. They seem to like this better than confined in a pot. Your plants are looking great. I grow a few begonias myself- my favourite is Begonia masoniana, the Iron Cross.

    They seem to do better with my growing, mounted, Yew. I have masoniana planted in the yard. It came back this year as it was fairly warm. It is a lovely species.
