    Default Finally an Orchid Greenhouse

    After years of windowsill growing I have had a greenhouse built last autumn
    Now after 4 months I can see the big differences already. My Vanda's grow lots of new roots instead of loosing them in winter due to the central heating in the living room

    Cattleyas produce more and bigger flowers.

    Look forward to what spring has for influence when everything really starts to grow.

    Hi Cathy and angela
    Thanks for the reply. The empty spaces are still there although I have been shopping quite heavily. Amongst which a huge Angraecum Eburneum which seems to be to big First had it on display in the living room but right now without flowers in the greenhouse It has a sweet fragerance in the evening
    I also had my 3 cybidiums in the greenhouse without succes ( few spikes and flowers fall of which is not strange in the warm greenhouse in winter) to hot so they go back to the garden as soon as temperatures allow it and will move them back in autumn in the house instead of the greenhouse
    When I move out the cym's I have new space for shopping actions...lol

    Every winter that my plants have spent in the greenhouse has amazed me more and more. This year was the best so far. You are going to absolutely love your little greenhouse paradise! I go out intending to spend a few minutes and usually come in an hour or two later. lol Your plants are going to love you for it!
