    Default Growing Areas

    I keep saying that my grow area is full and I can't take in any more orchids... well, here are the latest shots of my grow areas... I'm actually down to 172 plants right now, but many will need to be repotted (up) and/or divided soon.

    Notice the orchid growing essential in the first picture - - under the paper towel holder.

    Diane, is that your entire grow space in those two photos? I have a third the plants and much greater sprawl! Yikes! I need to study your setup more. There's a lesson to be had.

    Thanks for the pics!

    Diane,
    That looks very nice and it appears you still have lot of space left. And I have not yet counted the patio area. That looks empty! Hehehehe! Hoa.

    It is my Twinkles.... since I am new to orchids, I bought this and it came to me happy. It's dropping it's flowers slowly which I hope is OK.... All I do for my orchids so far is keep them drier than I ever thought I could do, and make sure their humidity pots below are wet... feed them every once in a while and hope that they stay OK for me :c)
