    Thanks again everyone! I am ok with the hieght of the plants (for now), I like having the ability to walk underneath them, otherwise I lose most of that deck space. As for my "sweet" love birds, I placed a small 2" clay pot with my free gift Vanda on top of their cage and when I went back outside they had tipped it over and chewed the only long root and two leaves! Since it was human error they are allowed to live another day!

    My prayer for you is that your Orchids will love their new set-up and thrive giving you lots of blooms to sit and admire. I think you still have room for some more!!!! go for it

    Great setup, Miller. Hope your ants are not as determined as mine. Here, they crawl up the supports and crawl down the hangers into the orchid pots. haha..

    Cheers,

    Here are some "better" pictures of the Vandas. I bought some new baskets for the newbies so they are also in their new homes! Oh yea, it was tough trying to get those root through those slats. I just balled most of them up into the new baskets. Don't know why the second picture came out so dark, I took the pictures back to back.
