    Hi Merlin

    First off...Welcome to the forums! WOW...that is a beauty!! I love it. Great photo too.

    Do you have many orchids? What varieties? Are the paphs your favorite? I hope you post more pics. I love to see what other people are growing. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Do you grow CPs also?

    I hope you come back to the forums often.

    Suzanne

    Thanks for the kind words. I've been growing orchids on windowsills and under lights for a dozen years. During that time, I've tried many varieties (with varying degrees of success) but now I grow mainly Paphs and Phals. I haven't counted them recently, but I probably have around 50 plants.

    I started with CPs about a year ago and I've got around 30 - mostly Sundews and Pings - under those same lights.

    Now that I've found these forums, I'm certainly going to be visiting regularly. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Wow Merlin! That's a lot of plants! How many windowsills do you have?? lol I have my orchids in windows and on a plant stand at a window. I am running out of space. I have a bunch of other plants too. I just added a new 20-gal. tank to my existing 2 10-gals. and 20-gal. for my CPs needing humidity. I will have to do a count one day of what I have.

    I do hope you hang around...the forums are interesting and fun. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I've got about 10 feet of windowsill (south, dappled shade), but most of my plants are under my lights. I've got a 50" by 30" table with a 4-bulb fluorescent fixture hanging over it and three 2-bulb fluorescent fixtures hanging under it. Also, I limit my plants to small-growing ones that won't take up too much space.

    And I certainly expect to keep hanging around [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    lol Merlin. Sounds like a nice set up. I don't have the space for that unless I forget "fancy dining" on my 8-ft. farm table in the dining room.

    Well that is a beautiful paph...I've looked at it several times. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Of course, you could hang some lights under the table and tell the dinner guests not to kick their feet...
