What do I grow besides orchids? Many many things. Hoya - 14+ species, only 1 is carnosa, say yes to H. macgillivrayii a couple bromeliads & a few cactus, mostly Trichocerus one Ginger - Bosenbergia longiflora - Finger root ginger Passiflora citrina (the new-ish dwarf species from Honduras) a couple tropical bonsai, like Fuschia, Ficus, & Nashia, Osmanthus & Bursera. outdoors 7 species of winter hardy bamboo, all good to -15 F about 35 or so "Sticks in Pots" that I tell people are bonsai, most people tell me they are "Sticks in Pots", or if they feel really honest, "Kindling". That's all too many plants to water.
