Welcome to dasheen's Member Page
I live in Ontario Canada where the winters are very very cold and the summers can be ridiculously hot. So I grow my orchids on my windowsill or under flourescent lights. I am still dreaming of the day that I am finally able to get my greenhouse. Since I love orchids with a passion, I am afraid to think what will happen when I do get a greenhouse. Currently I grow the following orchids:
1. Dendrobium nobile (some type of unknown hybrid)...blooms are pure white with a slight green and purple tinge at the back of the lips.
2. Oncidium Sharry Baby...still waiting for blooms.
3. Dendrobium "candy strike"
