A 10-day update on the growth of the greenhouse plants. The last update was January 15.
This is the right center bench, image taken from the front of the greenhouse. The plants show considerable growth in just 10 days. The dormants are not quite as evident as in previous post.
Just a word about lights. As you can see in some of the above images, I have 2 1000 watt high pressure sodium lights over each center bench. I have used these in the past, having them come on for about 4 hours in the middle of each night. As of last year, I only used them for 1 hour each night, having them come on about 6:00 AM and go off about 7:00 AM. This one hour in the morning helped the blossoms open completely and they were open when I wanted to hybridize.

Life is very, very good.
