Janice and I would like to
extend an open invitation to anyone on this forum to visit our Exotic
Rainforest atrium. We're blessed to have been able to grow so many
interesting plants and have many of them perform just as they would in the

visible in any of these photos, and the final is a wide angle view of the
atrium from the south door. As you can see, there is a fairly long epiphytic log hanging over
the walkway that has at least 70 or 80 plants growing on it as
There are more than 50
fairly large aroids hanging from the ceiling in teak orchid baskets and nearly
40 feet of "bench" around three walls holding smaller plants in pots. We
think you'll find plenty to see so feel free to come anytime you're in the
You can find my cell
phone number at the bottom of the homepage to our website and all we ask is
you give us some notice before you come.
Please accept the invite!
if you have a slow internet connection I apologize for all the
