    watering orchids

    I would avoid running them under a tap, I always let the water stand for a few hours to get up to room temperature and let any chlorine etc gas off.

    Sounds reasonable to me, dare I ask why you boil the water?
  3. This IS freestanding in the corner of the garden ;)
  4. If you want to maximise your available space ( don't we all) why don't you consider a freestanding lean toward (?). I built the missing wall out of wood and polycarbonate and it is approx 8 feet tall at the highest point ( don't have a tape handy) and it allows me two full length shelves above the main bench (3 if you include the space under the main bench , which I'm sad to say is currently just storage). Re attached pic seems a little dark on the right as I built it butt up to a beach hedge.

    Echinopsis 'Tango'

    Thanks Karsty, but like most cactus, short lived, which of course only adds to their charm.

    Echinopsis 'Tango'

    Echinopsis 'Tango' a plant I bought a good few years ago at Abbey Brook nursery and flowers reliably.
  7. Looking good Deltatango, I particularly like the removable mesh ventilation insert for the door. Guy, might I recommend you try finding a secondhand greenhouse, usually as good as new and a fraction of the price.

    Selenecerius grandiflora

    Well done at flowering chrysocardium, I understand they are really tricky to flower, I have had one for a similar length of time , but no indication of a flower.

    All staged out

    It really stands out, I have s similar O. de Kaleb x F 45 , but it has a lot of growing to do before it ( hopefully) looks like yours.

    Great looking set up. Now it's all sorted it's time to think about building another greenhouse! what is the impressive looking large red sarracenia two thirds down the left hand bench? Phil

    Selenecerius grandiflora

    Thanks Osmosis, to me one of the most unusual things is that it is planted in a five inch pot!. It has lots of aerial roots, but I don't know how much benefit it gains from them .
