    I received my pre-orders from the Santa Barbara orchid show, so that would be 6 plants (do doubles count? ...)
    It's all Ron's fault, he got me into the whole pre-order thing and now some vendors email me when they have plants they think "I could be interested in" ...
    I don't have to make any effort, they come and tempt me directly

    Amen to that. That is how I acquired 2 of my three flasks--the vendor just emailed me with a list of things "that might interest you." Sheesh--I already seriously lack self control already--and now you come with a tailor made list. What am I going to do . . . oh yeah, buy more.

    wow Margo. You're really crazy about orcs. But if I had a better place to store them I'd do the same, rsrsrsr.
    I've just purchased 3 mini - Pholidota chinensis;Dynema polybulbon;Epidendrum porpax ; also 1 paph. liemianum and another one that I'm not sure what is.

    I was trying to hold off until the Parkside show this past weekend, but I was good (a relative term) and only bought two: a peloric phal noid and Den. Mike Stripe. From the show I got a Slc. Hsin Buu Lady 'Y.T' and L. Santa Barbara Sunset 'Showtime'. Four total. I also divided one of my cattleyas. I thought all of this would quench the beast inside, but my birthday is coming up in the fall. I can't contain myself!
