    Hello Arwan,

    Collection looks great and a nice growing area. What are those styrofoam boxes below the papas?. Do you grow terrestrial orchids in them?

    Hi Sriram,
    The Styrofoam boxes are used for storing coco husk chips and leaf mold.

    Nice grow area. May I know in which country you reside? Good idea using those styrofoam boxes - neat and light.

    Excellent growing area. Big and roomy. Looks reasonably organized to me!

    Thanks Arwan. I remember Shillong from my geography lessons umpteen years ago - it was then the capital of Assam State and one of the famous hill stations in the colonial days. No wonder you can grow all those delightful cymbidiums and paphios.How I envy you! Though I have an apartment in the Cameron Highlands ( another of the colonial hill stations), it doesn't have any land to grow things. I can't afford landed property there as a single story house on a 5000 sq foot plot would cost me MRgt 1.2 million (approx US$400,000).
