Here is all my orchids all around the house, that don't include my noids. Very bad shopping and wanting to try some of everything is why it is such an exhausted list. I think I need to reduce my collection size a little (not everything is BS. I have lots of seedlings to NBS. looking forward to lots of first bloom paphs and phrags soon)

I've been using a halide lamp with light mover and every windowsill but it is cluttered and can only get worse when the plants get huge. I'll know what I can grow well by then! I do have a second unused lamp but I should avoid setting it up...
I have a feeling Phrags are becoming my niche
How do you get those Chinese characters in type?

I got someone to do it for me, or found them online. I thought they might be useful, though I can't read them.
Huge list!!!! I would love to have even the half!!!! :D WOW!!! Can you show some pictures of the growing areas??? TY, anyway!!!
My basement area.
Basically it is enclosed in plastic and then a layer of mylar. One wall is cement. The digital ballast is outside of the growing area and the lamp is hanging from the roof with a mover. I have a lot of ropes hanging where flourescent tubes were, they aren't all electrical cords!


Light mover and fan

This fogger has operated for years and hasn't failed yet. It doesn't smell humid during the day but at night it really smells humid even though the fogger is off. My hydrometer broke so I don't know the RH, but it shouldn't be overly high or my house would get mold!

Some grown up seedlings. They need repotting.

New seedlings in expanded clay. I'm trying the stuff out. Jackii loves it (second row left), and my pedro's moon that was once dying is healthy again (white cup). I lost some roots on my brachy seedings (top row) in sphag but they are coming along here in clay. My Ho chi Minh died, but it was a very slow one to begin with, probably bad genetics. Something tells me they need more magnesium?

My photos remind me of NYEric except it isn't in the living room, lol
WOW!!! Nice growing area!!! I was thinking of purchasing one ultrasonic fogger too but I thought it was not adequate for the orchid growing!!! Is it making any noise??? TY
Superb!!! You have no idea how you help me with your tip!!!!!

But then again if I beat the humidity border then I theoritically can grow more species!!!! Is that good???:rollhappy::rollhappy::rollhappy:
Wow, nice collection Fren! How on earth do you stay on top of watering :D

I cut down to approx 70 plants. Any more and I struggle to do them justice.
:rollhappy: I was thinking the same thing except I have some spaces left between a few of the plants!! Your list shows exactly the difference between the USA and Canada! Both in temp range and vendors. Thanx for sharing.

My photos remind me of NYEric except it isn't in the living room, lol
I just did some cleaning and sprayed all my plants. I am determined all mealies will be gone this time:evil: most of them die, but they keep coming back in small numbers on my favourite plants (why don't they go for the less favoured plants? like dendrobiums) They seem to like just parvi and maudiae types and not anything else.
I did kill all the scale on my windowsill phals with Merit:)

These are in in sheath/spike/bud growing in there:
Cattleya rex
Paph Maudiae ‘Los Osos’ AM/AOS x Red Pepper #1
Paph Lippewunder x Lippewunder
Paph Caraibe ‘Mad Max’ x insigne ‘Sanderae’
Pleione Orinoco (P.Tongariro x P.Eiger)
Phrag Ecua-bess
Phrag Serge Harvey
Phal Brother Golden Wish (peloric)
Phal large white noid.

I think Phrag Serge Harvey is in sheath but the growth seems to be too small for that, I'll know for sure soon though. This will be my first Pleione blooming. I've had it for so long, but what I did differently this year was not move it to my cool storage room for a rest. I left it where it was. Maybe my storage room is too dry and they blast?
