    Nothing in bloom as my "addiction" only recently began.
    Greenhouse was completed fall of 2017 and most of my orchids were moved in this Spring and showing lots of new growth so the blooms are coming

    Yes, it's Doritaenopsis Queen Beer 'Monteform'
    Got it at an orchid class I took at Duke Farms in Hillsboro NJ.
    Bloomed once with a solid red-purple flower...just gorgeous.

    Chris, the plan was to build it attached but the city had extra hoops for me to jump through to accomplish that. I ended up building it six feet away from my homes rear double doors so at some point I can build a covered "walkway" between the two. I'll take a pic from the house and post here.

    You can see I have a temporary tarp between the greenhouse and house for those snowy and rainy days, waiting on the electrical inspector as well to fill in and finish the buried utilities. It's a bit messy on the outside there but the orchids don't seem to mind

    You realise this area is far too small Mike, extension will be required in near future.. Addiction hasn't kicked in at all yet..

    Your probably right Roy, what is difficult to tell from the pictures is that the peak of the structure is about 11 feet high.
    I'm dreaming up ways I can hang a second tier of plants in there.
