Hi guys,

Here is a video about a portion of my orchid collection and the room I keep them in, with some tips for getting the most out of your windowsill...

Thank you both. You will find that knowledge and experience comes quickly enough with persistence :)

love it, my kitchen is well on the way to looking the same, to the point where cooking involves moving the odd cymbidium, adiantum, dracaena etc out of the way first.

however i doubt your son will appreciate it ... i was on board with the idea of staying in a room full of orchids until i saw the bed covered in streptocarpus, where is the poor boy meant to sleep if he needs to crash the night? lol

Thank you for your comments. It is easy enough to go overboard. Fear not, the streps can be moved!
