Your visits always make me smile. I love the Dendrobium. Thank you very much.
Me too! That dendrobium is sweet!
The Den is nice but the Bulbo. dearei is one of my favorite Bulbos.
Nice leopard spots on the Staurochilus, but it looks like quite a large, straggly sort of plant...
I guess if you have a farm, you don't have to worry about large plants. Those of us with space limitations notice that sort of thing.
Yeah! Farm Trip!
Orchidarium - farm. There is a difference....
"Those of us with space limitations notice that sort of thing."
How many greenhouses do you have? Yes, i know. Whatever space you have gets filled up... oke:
Is the question for me?
I do not have a greenhouse. My plants in the farm are in the open; many of them grow in tree trunks.
I call it a farm rather than an orchidarium because there are 50 coconut trees, about 100 banana trees, maybe 500 trees of various native species, 20 chili pepper shrubs that have grown feral, 5 chayote vines also grown feral, 10 papaya trees, 10 untended pineapple shrubs, 5 large clumps of two bamboo species. In the near future I shall be planting maybe a thousand pili (Canarium ovatum) trees for the nuts, in between them maybe vanilla can grow. That is in addition to about 5000 orchid plants I have there now.
It's so neat that you "share" your orchids with us!
Do you need a caretaker, Nelson? I'm applying for the job if you do. I don't even want
a salary...just make sure I get food every now and again. I'll work hard and make you
That was Gordon and I joking about limited space. Those of us who can't grow outside have to make serious choices about what will fit in whatever space we have (whether it is an orchid growing case as for Gordon or several greenhouses for me). I think we are all enchanted with your farm not only because of the space you have but also for the wonderful things you grow and share with us.
Sorry about any confusion i caused, ntgerald. As Marni wrote, it was a joke with her about space. Im just jealous... And planning to extend. But an orchid farm in Sweden is a bit of a long way off!
Thanks for posting your pictures, its great to see so many happy plants outside!
