    I don't usually spend that much on orchids. The most expensive orchid I've bought was a bulb + lead of a Cym LBS "Black Magic" for $50 (not commonly available in Australia) and I paid that with some reluctance. FWIW, I do put myself in the collector category but with a wife, kids and a mortgage, I know when to say no. I also know that with a bit of effort, a bit of patience and the right connections, a bit of good will can save you thousands. I haven't paid actual money for most of the rarest orchids in my collection.
