    Hey Bob. I love tillandsias and orchids and, having just had a GH built, would like to see your pics. Welcome to this forum.

    Nice! I can tell you that the 9th and 10th pics are of a Brassia. The 11th is Dendrobium/Dockrilla rigida (or is it rigidum?). I think the 8th/thumbnail might be a Dend kingianum hybrid but could be wrong. The first may be a Brassavola but I could be wrong. The second and fifth look like Cattleyas to me and the fourth is almost certainly a Dendrobium hybrid. Your tillandsias are freakin' awesome.

    Welcome, Bob! Great greenhouse and plants, thanks for sharing. First picture looks like a fat and happy Brassavola cucullata and #4 like Dendrobium kingianum or possibly a hybrid.​
