    I have bought none. Hey, with my trip to La La Land looming (say that three times fast), I had to figure out what to do with the ones I already had (thank you Letty the Landscaper).

    Don't worry though.......... my shopping days are not through. I might even have to get my friend Karen hooked on orchids while I'm out here. hehehe

    well, i'm in there with margo. 2 flasks, i compot, 10 small cats, 10 small dend, 10 small phals. 2 flowering dends (it was my aniversary!). that's it for the last 14 days. i did order another 60 or so, but they haven't arrived yet so that doesn't count. i'm new at this so i'm an indiscriminate collector; frankly, i've never met an orchid i didn't like! hubby is so thrilled i'm not breeding mastiffs and keeping one out of every litter he doesn't care how many orchids i drag in!

    See, I knew there were some junkies out there! ( Margo and donna). Some of the rest of you have admirable restraint. So, my true confession is that I have purchased 3 flasks, 1 compots and 1 plant. So 5 for me--seedlings don't count until they get their own pot. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    Randy, I wish I have a big greenhouse but instead I am running out of space... Just I am not thinking about the space when I am buying, and then I have to think about it anyway when the orders arrive...And I have no choice but figure it out... I got a gramm and I asked the seller to keep it for me for a week and he did!!! I am thrilled with it!!! and is quite a big one!!!
    Sarah, lets count yours in a few months after they are ready for their own pot... (I do have 3 flasks too.... one was purchased before the 2 weeks deadline!)Am I not counting them?! (even if I don't it's not going to make a big difference...)

    there no such thing as running out of grow space. if that is indeed the case, then the
    only thing left to do is build more space. the wife always tells me that i am willing to spend
    so much to provide good place for the plants but not with her hehehe. which is not the
    case.... really.... honest....

    I voted 1-4 but once I thought about it, it was more:
    Phal gigantea
    Epi. Cindy
    Blc. Greenwich
    Lc. Green Veil
    Mtssa Dark Star
    Milt. Andrea West

    No more orchids for a long time!
