    Default Cattleya Junkie - Kauai

    My outside window sill area facing the street. I do worry that eventually someone would come by and steal one or all of them.

    Some peeps purchase orchids and don't really care about their identification other than are they Cattleyas, Dendrobiums, Phals etc. I rarely buy anything unl-abled and I go crazy when I can't identify something.

    One of my growing areas under Areka Palms ... a perfect environment for them where the sun can peek in through the openings and windy a lot of times. Orchids (at least Cattleyas) seem to like wind.

    Closeup of one of the areas: Please enjoy!

    Very nice grow area. I am forced indoors 9 months of the year so I can only imagine having 24/7 outside orchids.
