    Default My new cymbidium house

    At last, all wired up, and all cymbidiums in ( approx 100). I'm delighted with the growths made, and spikes started - which I found as I moved them. Had been grown by the same system I shall use here - automatic watering using drip nozzles. I have yet to do the plumbing, and will stake spikes as I do that, and also see that the most advanced are at the front of the benches, to make it easier when I want to take the plants out.

    Plants growing very nicely now ; with no work, apart from topping up the tank. I and sure that leaves are taller - taking advantage of the extra headroom. When I moved the plants in, I put stakes against all the spikes I could see - quite a lot - but I have not done any tying in. Just let them develop naturally - see what happens. Looking good. Will post some pics when first flowers happen - quite soon now I think.
