    And you call it "balcony"?! It IS a jungle, I agree with other members. What a lovely place!

    Your orchids seem to like the unorganized, unorthodox approach Shane. I swear that there are some orchids that would learn to cling to your arms if you kept them still long enough. Nice retreat. Tell me do you share your beer with your orchid buddies? AL

    mine prefer the occasional splash of jim beam and diet coke... but my beer swilling friends tend to "share" lots of beer with my plants!

    I remember once when I went to our National Park in Pahang, I was looking through the visitors' book at the Park HQ and have always remembered this remark from one of our local visitors " Just like home". I can hear your orchids saying the same thing!!!!

    Mabuhay!

    If this is irresponsible handling......i would want to be irresponsible just to have those beauts smiling at me. hehehhehhee....great job. That's the beauty of orchids you can almost tuck them anywhere and would just surprise you one day that they like it there and thrive.

    thanks for sharing.

    How lovely - it must be so relaxing to step out into your mini jungle and inhale the little bit of paradise you have.
