    Katherine, this GH is 2/3 rds the size of the smallest one (heated) of the 3 I had at a previous location.

    I am much impressed, Roy. Incredible organization and care. I think my orchids would all curl up and die if I was to clean up their home with that detail. Please come visit me if you would like another cleaning, repotting, ordering challenge. hahaha... Very nice work, sir!

    cheers,
    BD
