    Only 40 hehe It's easy to lose count! I've had as many as 1000 at one point then moved to Eastern Ontario with only about 20.

    I'm happy now with about 20 and a few flasks that will need more room someday. Hope your husband knows he's next to go when the orchids need more room hahaha!
    I'm not sure the orchid bug that bit ya had that in mind when you fall in love with these stunning relentless plants!

    i have 15 rental properties, 6 English Mastiffs, and about 160 orchids (more on the way). my husband is thrilled that i'm buying orchids and not more real estate or dogs! oh, i bought my first orchid of this decade about 6 weeks ago. any bets on whether or not i have a green house by winter?
