    Is that Mylar you've put up on the wall behind your light stand? I've thought of doing the very same thing.

    Hi Rich,

    I checked my OrchidWiz software and neither of your two orchids that have not bloomed were in the database (with a photo anyway.) Sorry.

    They all look happy in your photographs, though.

    Cheers,
    BD

    The reflective material is NOT Mylar,from what I was told Mylar isn't user friendly and can not get wet(misting or overspray) I went to a Hydro-store and talked with them about what I was doing,They did have Mylar there, the reflective properties of this material is very close to Mylar.While I was there I had to pick-up a couple of T-5 lights w/reflectors.I'm sure there is afew neighbors wondering what I'm doing !!!! I live in a apartment.Everything is Good. Bruce,thank you for checking.Maybe someone out there might have a Pic.
