I love Helenae too, and all the albino forms.
In general I like those with beautiful variegated leaves and big flowers.

It was a sandstone cliff that I dug myself and then built the 3 others concrete walls around.
Have not a cooling system no fogger Just a large window on the roof that I keep removed from May till october. Not the best for keeping Ideal umidity level, but keeping the floor wet It helps somehow.

very nice indeed.... we grow a lot of the same things ...

your vanda root system(s) imply (to me) that your humidity concerns are not really an issue... i've had to start moving my vandas into clay pots (no medium, just the pot) to keep the roots healthy... mine were also just growing on a wire...

as i've started drying the greenhouse out more to keep all the unwanted biological activity at a minimum... that vanda situation started up...

Living in a coastal region, usually we have good relative air humidity, but due to the frequent strong wind and open greenhouse some paphio like micranthum suffer quite a bit during summertime.
Now instead I have a saturated ambient but almost any rot issue. Have many fans blowing no stop and every sunny day even in Winter time I let fresh air get into the greenhouse.
Fresh air Is your best friend!!!

that parishii is impressive
To be honest there are 2 plants of parishi(same clone) in the picture. Is an old plant( bought 30 years ago) but still a good grower and reliable bloomer). I love It!

I already saw in the photo that these are more than one plant....anyway, no matter if one or two plants the abundance of these flowers in the photo is mesmerizing.

Impressive display!

I especially love your extremely well coloured P. helenae, but you've got an embarrassement of riches in your GH. Where are you situated?

Kind regards, Jens, Copenhagen, DK
