    Wonderful setup!

    Out of curiosity for folks like you and Mass who use these setups: the greenhouses of this type I've seen are meant to be used outdoors, so they don't have floors. Do yours? How are you protecting the floor underneath?

    Part of me thinks that simply putting a heavy duty tarp on the floor (extending beyond the GH a couple feet in all directions) would be okay, but I worry that any water caught under the tarp (say through a small tear), would create even bigger problems.

    lol.. Cyrus the Virus. I liked Con Air, even though it was kind of cheesy.

    I thought I sent you more fun stuff than just those. I must've been in a hurry that day. PM me your address Larry! I've got some other stuff up my sleeve for you! We'll get the GH full in no time at all.

    I used an EXTRA thick shower curtain from my local F. Meyer, covered with indoor outdoor carpet per Mass' suggestion.
    In all reality, the floor does not get wet despite night time humidity in the upper 90% range and daytime 65% range. OR, the cat may be mopping up while I am away.
    I do have epiphytic orchids I spray twice a day along with the Neps, a few drips is all I get on the floor.

    yeah...Cyrus is our Grandson, we got him from our Son's home in Portland Or. He lived in a basement for the first 7 years of his life. Now he has a fenced yard, cat door, bird feeder, pond, garden ( lots of chicken wire around those area's, for obvious reasons )

    Oh yes thank you, you sent me the following
    P. Titan
    P. Moctezume
    P. Ehlersiae
    Ceph. "Hummers giant"
    All are happy and doing very well. I need to work on my photo ability
    I have two cameras, a large one with no Macro ability I got for inspections, with only 3 mega pixels, and a small waterproof I take Kayaking, which is what these were taken with.
