    Produced a small showing. Hopefully bigger next time! A total of three buds did fall off since I kept bumping into the two spikes. Running out of room!

    Such a beautiful flower! And what is your strategy for dealing with running out of space? More space, more miniatures, fewer plants?

    I'm somewhat in the process of moving, but when I'm fully settled in, I'm going to get another grow tent, but a bit smaller. I was thinking of something of the same height, but around 2x4 or such where I can fit in one 4ft long foldable. I have a few orchids and other types of plants that don't need daily attention so probably work out. I'll post a current picture of my grow tent later today and you'll get an idea how packed it is :p

    Just a bit cramped lol Feels like stepping into Florida or Hawaii when entering :p
    But I would like to move the non-orchids into another grow tent since they really need to be re-potted in the next month or such. The only orchid that I have no idea to do with is my Vanilla pompona. I need to start training it on something so it doesn't just continue growing upwards and then I won't be able to bend the stem at all. 20230614_110317.jpg 20230614_110327.jpg 20230614_110345.jpg 20230614_110402.jpg

    I can see that the vanilla would be a problem in there.
