    For anyone else who likes to grow other plants in there orchid growing areas, I wanted to share these pictures of the plants I have that are often outshined by a blooming orchid but then shine after the blooms fade.

    ♡ i have many others that im growing too♡
    I love citrus trees i have a navle orange, finger lime tree, and a Buddha hand. Crazy Sea onion, pregnant onions, seashell vine.
    , i had to start over on a project of mango trees and avacados grafted together and braided.( they got mealy bugs and in defense of my orchids i threw them away)

    Nice plants. I really like the next to last photo where the conks have grown around the vine stems. I have never seen that happen.

    That sounds like a very cool grafting project, but I'm with you on defending orchids from mealybugs, they are awful!

    And yes KellyW, I had never seen that before either. Very strange indeed. They seemed to grow overnight after a heavy rain and just engulfed the stems of the ivy.
