My kitchen

Post by Rhaen » Sun Aug 05, 2012 11:24 am

Well... here it is. A bit untidy, but that's the way it usually is, with orchids taken over the place...

Light and fan on timer. Most of my orchids seem to do well with this setup. The majority are phals. Got a couple of oncidium and dendrobium, and they seem to take the heat okay. Going to try and find them a cooler spot during winter. (Probably just move them into my bedroom).

And here is my latest bloomer; a Neostylis Lou Sneary (nf falcata x coelestis 'Blue'). Slightly disappointed that there wasn't more blue in there, but it smells wonderful, and is really compact.

Yup. Plenty of space. There's even room for 2 people to sit down and enjoy dinner! But it is slightly cramped... but just slightly ;)

Certainly a beautiful place to sit down and share a meal!

I'd have to say that's the best kitchen ever! And, I love your Lou Sneary and collection of Neos. :)

Beautiful plants. Try growing your Neostylis in colder conditions. When mine blooms outside in the summer, our nights get into the 50s F and and 40s F. I get very blue flowers that way. Our days still get pretty warm but it's cold enough at night to put a coat on!

Hahaha !

The places we keep our plants.

I have a friend who mounts his phals on the wall in his toilet, claims that they help him relax when he is sitting on his throne ! :lol:

lol. I guess they're his loyal subjects! I keep mine in my basement. People often give me a "wait...what?" look when I tell them that.
