Here is my new bulbo set up, and little frostii in bloom with one more flower to open. If you look hard, you will see a bud on my echinolabium. It is way to the right, out of the white tray,in a small tray draining into the bucket below. The bud is tall but tiny. I just bought it about a month ago and didn't expect it to bloom so soon. I am curious about what it will smell like.
I finally figured out a way to hang my mounted bulbos. There are a couple behind the wood basket which don't show on the pic. I moved my phrags out of that tray and put my bulbos in it. I found 48" X 22" shelving at Lowes and hung it behind the trays.
It was tricky getting that rack hung up there. Can you picture a 75 year old lady on her knees, leaning over the cart, trying to hang that monster on the back side of the cart? I was glad there was no one here to see that sight. It took several tries to hang it....but I did it. I'm very happy with the results.
One question. When I water, a bit of the water from the mounted plants could possibly drip on the plants below. I did leave space in the back of the tray for that purpose, but it may still drip a bit. Is that going to cause a problem for the plants below?
It needs a little tweaking yet, like putting the cords where they don't show. I was too tired by the time I was finished to care if they showed. Tomorrow is another day.
Oh BTW. I have them in my home in a small spare bedroom.
