    Default This years Cattleya shelter

    This is where the 4" and larger pots are housed for the summer. Had to go bigger this year. Maybe time to do some culling.

    No, its a back porch off the kitchen. Its about 4' off the ground. I have a rain barrel sitting on it with a sump pump inside. That's how I water. Hope to put a greenhouse there next year.

    Well planned, IMO!

    I thought it was a porch and the way you used the space is perfect!

    True. The one on the bench looks lonely!

    That's a miltonia. I put it back under the Cattleya after I took pictures.
