The new orchid sheds looks so organize and cool...I think with the flowers emerging from different species will give you extra energy and satisfaction.
    Thanks Zain! I am hoping to see lots of those Bulbos blooming in the next year due to the new shed and more filter light getting to them.

    You have done a greatjob, Jack.i am quite envious.
    I have done a lot of rebuilding myself this year, but since I am quite a bit older than you I had to bring in professionals to do my really heavy work : for example I replaced wooden trestles supporing my centre bench with a series of concrete block walls, each built on a foundation, with a tonne of concrete in each foundation, but just moving all the plants around and doing the woodwork on the bench top etc, took all my spare time from doing the housework, cooking etc - my wife is a semi- invalid, unable to stand for more than a few minutes or walk more than 50 yards without my help - but then our combined ages add up to 175 years !
    One of these fine days, when I have an hour or two to spare I'll post some pics of my rebuild.

    I wish I had your stamina now for myself, as you say I am younger then you but you are in much better shape it seems than I am in. Sometimes I feel like the work helps keep me going, you have got to keep your body and mind moving no matter your age. I wish I could get half of what you seem to do everyday done. I will look forward, like many others here, to those pictures of your remodeling! I might get some ideas, always thinking of how to make things better in my grow areas.

    I am using a 60% shade cloth. Yes the ones on the end do get direct sun from early morning till just around noon and then they also get sun thru the afternoon but thru the shade cloth.

    Good luck with your Vanda purchases, like most orchids some can take direct sun some can not!
