Yep, I could definitely do some damage with those tiny little tools. I probably couldn't even see half of them. And I agree neophyte... getting photos of those tiny little blooms... guy's got skillz.

We have a brand new member who just got into orchids and likes to take photos "macro work with stacked focus, and stereo imaging." I have no idea what that means, but I need to direct her to your thread. Sounds like she'd like to take a look.

Can you give link for examples of her work? Did she publish photos in this forum?
Of course, she's welcome to look photos in my project "Phoenix"

Rich in dirt and mud experience... not so sure about orchid skills. Last work before retiring was owning a couple of retail businesses, one of which was a water garden store. Lots of rock, koi, aquatic plants, liner, pumps, and lots and lots of mud.

She's a brand new member, and just mentioned in the Introduction thread she got into growing some orchids because she's into photography. Perhaps she'll start sharing stuff soon.

My orchids have bright sun from 4:00 A.M. till 7:00 A.M. in every sunny morning, and bright shadow from 5:30 P.M. till 7:00 P.M. every evening.

I watering them manually every 4-5 days.
I was rereading this first post because I wanted to see where you got the hanging pots.....this part made me laugh out loud. I am glad you decided that 20 was nowhere near enough!

Yes you are right. All Russian orchid lovers on the forum ruorchids.ru remind me of this and laugh at me too

I think Akenaten meant to say only 20 in bloom at one time. Having been given a space to reside, we all know that orchids will follow Parkinson's rule.
