    Question How many orchids....

    Okay it's time to spill everyone...

    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....?

    I had to go count... 64 not counting the seedlings yet. I think is time to stop buying for a bit and finish the inventory before I get totally confused...

    66 yesterday, 69 today, and 4 more on the way. The last two months have been a bit crazy for me.

    100 orchids! I am so jealous!!!
    I have about 2 dozen right now (I am not feeling up to going around counting them) I hold on to them until it is obvious that they are not going to grow anymore--a few are dormant still in spite of my attempts to increase light.
    Mini phals seem to do best for me.

    354--not including all my seedlings and compots they don't "count" as plants until they are big enough for their own pot.

    Yeah--just typing that makes me feel a bit compulsive--that is a bigger number than I'd like to admit.

    One day I will have a greenhouse...then I really worry about my buying habits! I don't know if I will ever have as many as Tednz, but maybe as many as you Sadie!

    I don't particularly count mine, but usually have around 50. Right now may have a few less-just auctioned off a dozen or so keikis and less than favorite plants. My space only holds about 50, so that's my limit .
