Cool setup Caveman! Nice collection of neos too.

I have been looking at setting up a mesh benches, but the RRRRs are way too much for me. I Have decided to go with wooden lats as I can get them free or very cheep.

Where are you located is SA?

Cool, or should I say COLD. When you come down Durban way you should pop in for a visit. Some really good and not too expencive growers down this way.

Welcome to the forum. I have learned a lot on this site and am still learning. Don't be afraid to ask any question you like (relating to Bromeliads though!).

Best wishes,

Conrad

Hi everyone - Good to see you posting more pic's caveman, as Conrad says, we can all learn a lot from this forum and the more questions you ask the more you will learn. Don't forget you can also access past threads and these contain a wealth of information and some great pictures as well.

That's a pretty decent collection you're putting together there, although I expect that like the rest of us, you'll eventually run out of space and have to extend.

I especially like the shape of the Neo. 'Chubby', does it colour up any more then that? Also your Neo.'Groucho' and the Neo. 'Hannibal Lector' cross are attractive also.

Your unknown mini Neo. on the right looks like a species I have called Neo. punctatissima, check it out on the FCBS Photo Index (the pic in the middle) and see what you think, bearing in mind it can be variable.

Like everyone else, I too started out growing my plants on benches but now after some years I have run out of space and have started using the vertical space. What I have found is that the plants seem to grow much better hanging in this fashion and I think this is primarily due to the increased air circulation around them........ in other words, back to nature.

Well done Caveman. Nice neat benches and some lovely Neo's in your collection. I especially like that Neo chubby for it's shape.

Nev, great use of space in your shadehouse. Your collection is really coming on nicely. Importantly, there is very good light coming through for your vertical brom arrangement. Keep up the good work.
