    I say as many as I can carry and then some, in fact with unlimited funds I'd buy 2 or 3 nursery wreath and thats not just with orchids, its with all plants. I'm a true horticulturist and have to have it all. I have 10 acres and its already looking more like a botanical garden then a yard.

    If I have unlimited fun, first thing to do is buy 10 acres land and make a nursery so I can collect all dendrobium from section formosae and callysta and paphio too . Because now I am run out of place

    Unlimited funds?........ A new place with acres of space, a humongous orchid house, a medium size cool house, an auto everything sprinkling/watering system,a hired hand to do the repotting, and two rented trucks to take the orchids home(that's only for the first visit).I thinks that's about all.

    mmmmmmmmmmm....well seems like i am the odd ball here, well i think i will just grab what i can handle, meaning do i have the space and time for them. won;t want to buy too much and neglect them at the end. well i guess my answer must have been very disappointing. hehe

    I voted 0-2 orchids (for myself) because if I had unlimited funds, I would simply travel all around the world to see my OrchidTalk friends and their unique orchid collections in person. AND I would totally buy a gift orchid for each person I visit to add to her/his collection so they would remember our visit each time they see that particular orchid in bloom.

    cheers,

    I chose rent two cars and would probally add a van or two. LOL I am with Tony on this. Unlimited funds would mean a move to a tropical paradise and a home with lots of land and room for orchids.

    No, to each his own, Bill. I just really love to travel and with unlimited funds I would really have a great time doing it. Orchids for everyone!
