    Default My west north west Orchid window...

    Our local orchid show is next weekend and I rearranged everything in the hopes of fitting a few more in. Maybe with a crowbar!!

    Looks good. I can see some spaces where you could easily fit a few more.

    Yes, great set-up!

    I too see lots of room for more!

    And I don't see any hanging from ceiling hooks, which mine love to hang from and grow.

    I like your thinking, my show is also this weekend and although I am trying to be good, those pesky things will sneak into my car every time.

    The 1st picture in this post is from a year and 8 months ago and there is a distinct possibility that I have a problem. Not an addiction problem no, no, no. Just lack of space. A lot of them will go into the basement grow room next week so no problem. We'll get some of our window space back and maybe put up some curtains. I need to do something about the lack of in bloom plants this time of year. Any suggestions?

    My goodness, so many inside the house! My husband would kill me! LOL He almost had fit last week when I had to bring about 15 orchids inside (in preparation for the hurricane that was threatening us) and hung them in the bathroom and garage My solution for not having any in bloom, is to go buy one or two that are blooming.

    How do you water them?

    I walk most of mine, in the range of 200 orchids, to the sink at every watering.
