Photos of my plants August 20th, 2009
So my wife and I finally made the move to Ashland, Oregon. Since getting settled in, I've got my new greenhouse set up! I'm very excited about that. It gives me plenty of room to expand my collection.
Unfortunately I kept most of my collection inside under fluorescent lights this spring in order to try to keep them cleaner so I could gather tissue for tissue culture. When we arrived here in Ashland, I planned to just put them out in the greenhouse and let them acclimate. I had no idea that the temperatures would be over 100°F the week we got here. Between the heat and the intense sun that they weren't used to, most of them burned to a crisp!
The plants in these photos were either outside when we were living in Boulder, have recovered or, for one reason or another, weren't affected as badly by making the move from fluorescent lights to direct sunlight.

There should be a lot more color on the plants in about a month.
Hope you enjoyed the tour of the new greenhouse!
