    Hi Fen and all,
    I would invite everyone to share the beauty of orchid at my greenhouse around this time, But i got burn twice already and twice i had to move my greenhouse to diff. location. The only option i can come up with is blind someone whom would like to visit, then i would drive those people to my greenhouse, but that doesn't look good ... I wish i can trust everyone..... hmmm any idea how i can do this without offend anyone?

    I don't understand this. Why would anyone wants to burn or do harm to your greenhouse? Is it because some of the orchids you have in your greenhouse? The hangianum, for example?

    May I know the ID of the one on the last pic? I have one too in spike.

    BTW, I live in a location where these Paphs are not illegal

    They are beautiful, why would anyone want to destroy them or did they steal them and burn the evidence?

    Well, let me make it a bit clearer... before i closed out my greenhouse to public. I didn't care if anyone visited my GH... one day i captured one of the customer broke in at night time and took some orchids. Then i decided to move my GH to diff location and limitted who i invited to visit. Then it happened again!!! someone broke in again... Then i moved again for good this time. ... Yeap, i turned the tape over to police, i recovered most of my orchids, But it was the worst condition ever... alot trouble to get them back ... So, i'm looking for solution... how do i invite people over to visit my GH without dealing with bad people?
    Thank you for your input,

    It's terrible that some people steal. I'm sorry you had that experience. Your paphs are beautiful.
