Hoa, if you get between Diane and her loved ones, I believe you'll get all the pinching, tickling and kicking that you're dreaming of ...perhaps more!

Yup, subtlety is my middle name!

Well...since you asked...I'd want something totally different than what I already have. And I prefer plants whose flowers don't require a magnifying glass to spot.

Maybe a pretty Lycaste, or some snowy-white Angraecum...but it would need to be tolerant of slightly less humidity than some of them require.

That all being said, birthday gifts are not required! I'd be thrilled if you guys could track down a source for a Blc. Daybreak. And make sure you post pictures. I want to vicariously experience a real orchid show...not one of our puny, runty New England shows.
