Update - we renovated and rearranged our orchidroom a bit, Olaf build a new table to the left, which has a much better hight for working on it (as we both aren't too short ;) - it is so much better for our backs) and 8) more space for our plants :D
We made a few shots - from the room / tables and some flowers and plants to give you a small impression.

New table with Sylvi's green chair 8) :D

Thank you - and yes, my green chair is also from the big yellow store :D But I'm sure you needn't be envious for a second - you always show the most beautiful plants and flowers yourself! :)

Beautiful room Sylvi!! How did Olaf make the tables? So they drain into something?

Thank you, Martin - no the table doesn't have a sink , it is a table covered with a waterproof sheet filled with Seramis - when I water the Seramis soaks the water and for a long time the humidity rises - but we always have at least 60% mostly over 70% - without mold in the room (!) - very good ventilation. But it would be quite easy to make a sink but it would have to drain in a big bucket ;)

Thank's Anita, we are really happy you like it :)

Wow Sylvi and Olaf. Just wow. Keep coming back to this, as I love seeing how everyone does this and that. From the little things to the obvious. What exactly is Seramis, and how deep are your tables?
Just great work you two.

Adrienne, Tess and Hera - thank you! Glad you like it :)

Jarad, may I post this link: http://www.seramis.com/7-5l-large-bag-s ... useplants/
It is a lot easier than to describe ;) ...and the table is 5cm deep (frame). We also love to see other peoples setup ;)

Very impressive Sylvi. I really like the new set up, and you have fabulous plants. You and Olaf have done a great job.

Seramis, hmmmm. I was wondering what you're using now that Hydroton is out of business.

Cheers.
Jim

@Jim: we both say "Thank you" :) - We still get hydroton here but what I like better on Seramis (at least for this use) is, that you get a "smoother" surface on which the pots stand stable ;)
