    I grow in a "Basement Greenhouse". I felt it was less expensive and more controlled. I didn't want to worry about -20 and power outages and cloudy days and... more.

    The cost of lighting is fairly expensive, but I recover the heat and reduce the cost of running the furnace.

    The most I ever had at one time was three. I raised two babies for my own use...pleasure & show. They were the best horses I EVER had...because I was not only their trainer/ leader, but their human "Mom." We had a very strong bond...I trained them to pull a cart first, then when they turned three, I started them to saddle, and first level dressage. Fun! Betty :-)

    Any orchid grower in the Philippines already installed their misting/irrigating system? I would like to know how much did it cost you and electric/water costs to maintain them coz I'm planning to have one set-up for my shade house project. Thanks in advance.
