    Both are beautiful, makes me want to get more paphs, Jack are you growing these in a greenhouse, if so what do your temps run? I'm worried that my greenhouse may be too hot for paphs.

    Shane,
    I purchased a 6X8X6 chainlink dog house with swinging door several years ago. I have a 50% green shade cloth covering the top and sides about 4 feet from the ground on 3 of the 4 sides, the end that has the door is in a position that does not get any direct sun so the shade covers only the top area on that end. I have added some hanging areas on three sides on the outside of the structure for more room out of pvc. I probably get very similar weather and heat as you do in Louisiana as I am in the southern part of Florida, Ft. Lauderdale is to the east of me. There are no trees that block the sun until late in the day as my neighbor in the back has a big palm tree that shades 3/4 of the structure after 3 pm so from the time the sun comes up till 3 pm I get sun on this structure, I do get a constant breese 95% of the time blowing in the end where the door is located. This has worked out well for me!

    Bruce & Yew,
    Thanks for the comments on my setup, it does the trick for me. I am about to run out of shelf space on the inside and would like to get a larger one, but my landlord has said he does not think that is such a good idea. I guess I will have to start using every inch of the chainlink for hanging orchids.

    Cool setup Jack, wondering do you cover it with anything in the winter?
