    nice area...i see you have potted plants underneath the orchids to accept the overflow of water....good thinking....it must be difficult to manage so much! i like your 'orchid tree'....good growing!

    Do you use any supplemental light or only from the window we see in the photos. I'm looking forward to Part 2! and Part 3?

    Oh, Candace, do you think he has a ladder?

    I'm 1,60 meter

    I use a sprayer
    but I must be very careful ,
    I spray vandaceous hung at the window a little every day because next to the windows glass dry in a hurry..In the pots under are not orchids, only a Phrgmipedium... and the water are not too much.. the little vandas (Trudelia cristata and Alpina) have been moved to another room

    I don't use supplemental light, but It could serve,
    Unfortunately, the electricity costs much ..
    I hope to change home soon, here I have many problems not only for Plants
    I have to attack a fan because the rafts are not a dry one day, with heating is not normal, I want install grow lamps but I had make a projet

    It is not true, I place up the plants want few water..

    The totem is place on a pot with some plant on idroponic, sphatyphillum and other... they make a microclimate around the totem

    near the floor, under my appartament are the boxes get very cold from below, this is the reason I grow my D.moniliforme and kingianum like the picture

    Oh thank a million!
    I this picture are not visible under moniliforme Sedirea japonica, Dendrobim jenkinsi,other varieties of moniliforme,a Neofinetia falcata "amami" pink and I don't rimenber in this moment...
    some of variegated Dendrobium moniliforme are one of my recent purchases, I love this species, this plants are very robust and they give me satisfaction...
    I grow small species of Cymbidium like ensifolium and kanran supported directly to the floor, other plants that want to cool least the support of other jars, I put some in jars of Hyppeastrum and Hibiscus.
