    Default Pic of my sunroom grow area.

    Here is a pic of part of my sunroom grow area. You can see Paph dianthum in spike in the foreground, Paph supardii in bloom behind the dianthum and Phrag Grande in the background. You can also see Paph parishii in spike to the right. I know the picture is not that great but you get the "picture".

    I'll post more glamor shot pics of my Paph dianthum, Paph supardii and Paph parishii when they are in full bloom.

    Thanks!

    I wish I could take more but I made a cage around the grow area so the cats don't have access to the plants at all. So it's a little difficult getting inside and taking pics comfortably. Took another one. Paph reobellinii in the front center, Paph moquettianum to the right, Paph philippininese behind Paph roebellinii, giant Paph kolopakingii on the left next to the wall, Dendrobium spectabile in the background, Paph stonei next to Dend. spectabile, Paph adductum hybrid in front of paph stonei and behind Paph Berenice.

    I was going to say "your roebelinii is wonderful Pete", but sigh, then there's your kolopakingii (oh, tough one, did I get that right??), well, they are all lovely, so be it...

    Cage huh? might want more info on that. Having trouble w/ sun loving kitties...Need to put *her* in a bag...along w/ the neighbor kids...I could kill two birds w/ one stone!! (kidding, sort of!)

    Very nice, Pete. My sunroom has old-fashioned, 12 pane windows in it that are like a sieve when it comes to letting in cold air. Which means that it's only good for the cool growers during the winter. Yours looks pretty modern and airtight.

    Yes, it's a nice sunroom but not heated, so I bring all my plants indoors under HPS light systems.

    Nice photo, it is great to see some more natural photos. It looks like we get the same amount of lighting in our grow areas. Your plants don't get burned ? I have a fan on mine at all times during the day, it helps stave off the burn.

    By the way...Country Crock rules !! I have a plant in a Chuck E Cheese cup for a while .

    Traci, I couldn't find a bigger pot at the time, so I made use of the Country Crock tub. LOL!

    Multifloral Paphs and Phrags need very very bright light to bloom. They get direct sunlight parts of the day.
