    Default Murphy's Law for Orchid Growers

    I read this and thought I'd share:

    Murphy's Law for Orchid Growers

    The more you paid for a plant, the more likely it will rot.

    When you show your best Cattleya, all the judges will be Paph growers.

    Your best orchids bloom the day after a judging and develop thrips damage the day before the next one.

    The best crosses produce the least seed.

    The first fallacy of pest control is that it exists at all.
