Winter watering

Winter watering has been in effect for awhile. That means I have to load up the pump sprayer and hand water those plants that need even watering and let the winter-resters be dry.

I get spoiled in the summer. Watering is fully automatic. There is a base amount of watering with additional watering based on humidity and temperature. I repot, take flower pictures and enjoy the orchids. Sometimes even breaking out in song. Summertime, and the livin' is easy.

The last two weeks, what with the holiday and all, I have been lazy about the watering. I think about it but put it off.

Yesterday I decided to take some greenhouse pictures to post and looked at the Masdevallias in particular. They are very much in decline at the very time they should be perking up. They need regular watering.

I am sure I have other plants that are starting in decline but the Masds are showing it quicker.

No greenhouse pictures today. I will be out in the greenhouse making sure that the wet and dry orchids are properly separated and that the watering is done.
