    How many orchids do you have in your collection?

    I bring this subject up because as of this week I will be at 100 plants. This does not include the seedlings I recently planted up...won't count those till they start to mature.

    What about the rest of you....?

    If I include the ones that appear to be dying my total is only 23. However if I were to add those from my wish list, it would be 38 and counting. The only thing that keeps me within the realm of reality is knowing how long it would take me to water them in my apartment. Darn reality!!

    Of course, if anyone thinks they have too many, I'd be happy to give them a very good home. Still have lots of room!!

    I'm not so sure but I guess I roughly have around between from 150 - 250 individual plants. I just have stopped and lost count because of my busy office schedule.

    I have few enough to count off the top of my head...

    - 6 Vandas
    - 3 tolumnias (1 dying - I'm not named orchid_killer for nothing)
    - 1 trichoglottis
    - 3 cattleyas
    - 1 anselia
    - 9 phalaenopsis
    - 2 mini-phals
    - 2 dendrobiums
    - 2 nuns orchids (combined in 1 pot)


    So, that's a grand total of 29 orchids... I'll let you know how many are left next year.
