    IIRC, Dale said something about your lack of deodorant at prior harvests. At least I think he did.

    It's been great to see many new members over the past few months, however many newbies haven't entered their location (even a vague one) into the OI interface for others to see with their posts. I'm bumping this thread to encourage you all to add a general location; knowing this helps when it comes to understanding your growing conditions. City isn't necessary but I would like to see at least a state or province, or at the very least country.

    Austria, district Styria and ...
    the greenhouses are small and regrettably not mine. But the architecture was awareded. Ntl the orchids living in there are sentenced to die as the gardeners cultivating them are skilled in tomatos only.

    Those are beautiful greenhouses. Do they function well for horticultural purposes?

    well they are about 2-3 metres in the ground. Basically they would work well, regrettably the Botanical Garden in Graz isn´t skilled in keeping tropical orchids. They have a nice Stanhopea-collection, cultivate an amazing collection of Carnivorous plants though but the orchids we brought to them over the last years have all disappeared or died off. Sometimes only the tags remained and the gardeners didn´t even notice the plant passed on already long ago. There´s no Botanical Garden in Austria we actually collaborate with, it has no use. Sometimes it seems they just want to have the plant in order to fulfill their lists but don´t bother whether the plants are still alive or not.
