    Nice photos, I don't know how I ever missed this posting!!! I wish I could check out your GH in person, it looks really cool! I can't grow milts either - they look at me, swear loudly and then proceed to shrivel before my eyes

    I, too, really enjoyed the tour! I also appreciate you taking the time to share your failures along with your successes (Miltonias don't like me, either) because it's encouraging that even those who have awesome results with some plants have their problems, too. My own plants don't look quite so sad by comparison when you show the range.

    Thank you for sharing that, I have to say, not to be mean, but to see unsuccesful attempts make me feel not so alone. Lol, beautiful plants though, and I can't wait to build my greenhouse in a couple years

    Thanks for sharing those photos John. Makes me want to own a greenhouse even more. You must post more pics when all of those spikes are in flower. Oh, and by the way, seeing as you say your bletillas aren't doing so well, throw them outside with the cymbidiums. They appreciate similar conditions.

    Edit: Oops. I forget that it's now winter in the northern hemisphere. In that case, I would advise that you cool down the plant, wait for its leaves to die down completely, and then forget it in some non-frosty corner of the yard. When spring arrives, water and leave with the cymbidiums.

    Essentially, treat it like an ordinary spring bought bulb.
