    It is not a big greenhouse, but enough for my collection.

    I think that I won't heat it during winter, so at the end of automn, all the orchids will go back in house.
    For the moment I've only found time to put all my mounted in, but in the next few days I will do the same with the ones which are poted!!

    Here are my mounted orchids:

    Congratulations. Is this your first greenhouse? Did you build it?

    Congrats on the new GH
    I did find it entertaining with what you said about it being large enough for your collection...TODAY! ;) There is always a tomorrow and more plants. Always

    Yes, it is my first greenhouse and I've built it with my little hands!!:p

    When I said that it is enough for my collection, it is because I only have and want to have Angraecoids. I know that there are plenty Angraecoids that I don't have, but they are so hard to find that I won't certainly have a lot of more orchids in the future...unfortunately...

    Nice one! just wondering where u can get that kind of plastic that you put around, it looks like a bubble wrap. I had a small greenhouse but the plastic cover was ripped due to strong wind.

    I Think that you're talking about the bubble plastic inside the greenhouse??
    In fact it is a special one for greenhouse, with large bubbles. There are three thicknesses, it resists the sun and is sold in a specialized store in farm produces.

    Thank you very much for the info. I like the way you arranged your orchids they're so pretty eventhough they're not in buds yet. You had a cute greenhouse and thanks again and have a wonderful & marvelous day to you.

    How in the world do you fit all these plants in the house during the winter?! It must look a bit like a jungle in the house :)

    In fact they stayed in the greenhouse during winter...it was too much work to bring them back in house...
