    I voted 5-10. Shreveport just had its Orchid Show and you cannot go to a show without buying. Then I had to go online for a few slippers because right now I am obsessed with bull dog slippers.

    I bought an outrageous amount of orchids recently because they were cheap and donated for a fundraiser. I'm pleased I got stuff I wouldn't normally get to try out

    Got 14 new plants two weeks ago at local show. But I did get rid of about 10 plants from my collection, and have another 11 new ones coming this weekend. A friend of local society is going to Canadian Orchids Conference and picking up the plants. I think this is a record breaking for me within two weeks. lol

    I put down 4 on the poll, but would have to "confess" to 17 during the last month ......

    I can't help myself sometimes. When our OS speaker Fred Clarke brought his Cattleya crosses and species to sell at our meeting I couldn't resist. I also was given those Schom. divisions I posted pics of. That put me in the 5-10 range.
    My name is Jeff and I'm a Cattleyaholic.

    Only 1 in the past 2 weeks, which is good. But, I have 2 that I have contacted a grower about, and will order as soon as weather gets a bit better for shipping. And my OS meeting is Sunday...that's usually good for 1 or 2 bargains...

    I loved reading this! Even though it is kinda old, it makes me feel calm. And proves I'm not as addicted as some! I got one a couple days ago. Though it was pretty in store, although planted in a really horrible way (too deep, no drain, and with a fern and ivy). The next day I sent off this text saying "You know, some men bring home flowers occationally" Guess what came home form work in the back of the car?

    Future plans are seeds from thailand, about 8000 seeds total. Even at 10% sucess rate, thats more plants than I can fathom!

    Tcati....I hope you make out better with seeds from Thailand, than I did with seedlings. They were dried up and dead in the box. No more Thai bargains for me ......
