Baskets arrived today, shade cloth scheduled for Friday. The orchids I'm putting outside fall into the same department, but could be titled 2 different things......sun/light lovers or orchids I have not bloomed yet

My 1 vanda, 1 dendrobium, and my small cattleya collection. My total orchid collection is a little over 20 right now. Ive been able to rebloom my phals and each of the oncidium types (excluding 1 of my brassias). The rest have showed nice growth, good color, healthy roots, just no blooms or even spikes. I'm going to be donating everything I've bloomed, and focus on those that I have not. If I rebloom them, I will gradually expand my collection again, consisting of only cattleyas. My kids really enjoyed the Ann Arbor orchid show this spring and have already picked out a cattleya for themselves from Sunset Valley Orchids. Slight tangent, but that's the current stays around here!

Interesting story about shade cloth... On sunny days, I stretch my polyethylene one over my orchids with bungee ties. Last year, we had a hailstorm move through. I rushed home to save my orchids and found that the hail was bouncing off the shade cloth like little kids off a trampoline. Was pretty cool. I left everything out.

Everything is up and they enjoyed their 1st night outside with a nice all night rain. Will share a few more detailed pics later, gotta run to a local parade!

I like that Bob. I wish dear hubby would get the deck done so I would have a place to put some of mine out. If I did it now the wind would take them far, far away.

We men will indeed do the projects we say we'll finish. You don't have to remind us every 6 months.
