    Your lighting is just strip lamps above each shelf ? Do you have any idea of the intensity ( f/c or lux) on the leaves ?
    The leaves are all good colour : if they have been there with that level of lighting for months you have got it right.

    Thanks Geoff but I had to move the row of plants that were directly under the lights. The front row is about 6" away from them and that's fine but I have to drop that shelf about 3" so I can put the whole thing to use..

    Yes, except for the peeling floor paint but never mind that! You have to start a thread to tell us what you got at Redland!

    Do I really have to confess to how bad it was in the number of orchids I bought home? Redland was amazing as usual and if I lived elsewhere I would have that trip on my bucket list for sure!

    Few more than 25? I know a few Canadians were there. Pictures have been showing up on that social network thingy. Conchita and I have been discussing going next year. Have to get paperwork though. I'd hate it if I saw something I really wanted and couldn't buy it.

    35 is the final number, still mounting them all! The only bad thing you might not like is the heat, in the high 80's on Saturday and I think hotter yesterday. If you can come for the weekend they have a weekend package price for tickets and you could go early in the morning for 3 days as they open at 9am before the heat and the crowds show up.

    I bet the overnight temps would be rather warm too for a northerner!

    True but most of the time you will be indoors in the evenings and everyone has AC!

    35 is a lot more than I've ever bought at a show! Mostly Bulbo's or did you find some Dendrobium that will make me jealous? My wife would love those temps but she hates the sun. I've got it! I could carry an umbrella big enough to cover us both while she fans me!

    Nights are around 50F here lately so the furnace has been turned off. I sleep nekkid with a sheet when it gets that hot.
