    Here's an image of the tiered bench where many of my paphiopedilums reside:

    When the current air pollution dies down, I'll be able to put plants outdoors, while I add another of these benches.

    Good growing everybody!

    Well, I got the second bench in place a few days ago:

    The benches are aluminum. I added plastic egg crate to prevent sitting in water.

    As for what I'm growing, I did a rough survey this morning. The greenhouse is pretty crowded, so the figures are approximate.

    Phrag species - 15 plants
    Phrag hybrids - 6
    Paph. species - 30
    Complex paphs - 70
    Other paph hybrids - 10

    Cheers and good growing,
    Paul

    Thank you.

    They make it easier to observe the plants. I'd like to add a couple more.

    Thanks, everyone.

    I'm usually in a state of confusion...seriously, I'm in the SF Bay Area.
    Cheers

    There are three step benches on the west side now. This was taken with a fisheye lens.
    Cheers and good growing,

    I thought they were growing on a 'lazy-susan'!
