    Bonnie's Tropical Greenhouse

    This is my 8'x12' greenhouse that some of you were asking to see. It has a swamp cooler, and reaches a max temp of 78 degrees, with a min of 60 degrees, vents and heating/cooling is all automated. There is an RO filter hooked up to a float valve on that trash can, with a mist system on a humidistat set to keep it above 75% humidity. There is also a 50' soaker hose buried under the gravel, with the timer set to come on twice a day for ten mins each. No CP's in this one, but I have a 6'x8' with a swamp cooler that I am planning on setting up for some highland Nepenthes and Heliamphoras.





    Hoyas, Dischidias, and Orchids



    Gesneriads



    Epiphytic Blueberries



    Huperzias and a big Pyrrosia longifolia





    Rhizomatous Begonias







    New growth on my Begonia microsperma (it collapsed for a bit after I moved it to the greenhouse)



    New growth on the Begonia quadrialata





    A funky succulent Columnea that is supposed to have spectacular flowers



    More of the Gesneriads







    Diastema vexans flower



    Hoya lacunosa flower



    Dischidia ovata



    Hoyas





    Dischidia imbricata



    Dischidias







    Ficus villosa coming back from the dead after a rough adjustment



    Part of my Ceropegia collection, there are a lot more in the shade house





    Show leftovers



    Some rarer Peperomias











    And the coolest orchid ever, Pleurothallis marthae, in a 2 gallon bucket



    Some of my orchids coming back from the dead after overwintering in the shade house





    Alocasia nebula 'Elaine' that my awesome friend Phil got me because he knew I had been looking for one



    Under the bench Ferns, Aroids and Begonias

    Awesome Bonnie! Everything looks great! That orchid in the 2 gal bucket is spectacular! I also noticed a few restrepias. That ant plant with the big pod looking things is pretty sweet too! Thanks for posting this!
    Too weird to live, too rare to die.

    I don't even know what that stuff is and I'm impressed (besides the begonias).

    What a nice, tidy space! Lots of botanical curiosities in there, I can tell :-)
