MarinaDC -
It likes its roots exposed to light.
I grow mine on a treefern mount.
I water every sunny day.

What a gorgeous display! That looks like the side of your house, but I see you are in NJ, so it's still too chilly for them to be outdoors. Is that a greenhouse adjacent to the house, maybe an enclosed porch? Just curious.

Hi Cheri -
It’s a Lean-to on the back of my garage and I have access from inside.
Dimensions are 10x20 feet and it faces south.

I have been looking at those lean-to structures for some time. Are you happy with yours? Did you use an installer?

It is from BC Greenhouses in Canada, purchased from a US vendor. The slope was custom so that it would fit under the gutter of the garage. It was easy to put together with the manual and video. I believe it is the Cross Country model. I opted for the five wall polycarbonate.

Here’s a shot:

Absolutely stunning Bayard. Including the individual pictures. Bravo!

And a bit of greenhouse envy going on here.
