    Default Gigantic Haul

    I approached someone I had purchased some phal species and primary hybrids from before and he told me that he had space problems (don't we all) and that I should come by. I did that this Saturday and this is what was in the back of my car when I got home; 201 phals. Add that to my meager collection of 68 orchids I have nearly quadrupled it yesterday. They are not all in the best shape and some a missing tags. It's going to take a while repotting these.

    Hey Richard! Now you have even more than I! I'm stuck at 225 'chids at the moment, and need to put up more shelves for them all. Looks like you will be doing some shelf constrction soon, too.
