    Hey Kevin how big is your greenhouse ? I think if I had a lot more space and lived on my own property all bets would be off lol . I'd have to literally stay home not to see something I liked and bring it home .

    I keep track by making a list of the orchids and I don't record doubles (or triples) or ones without ID. I only count the ones on the list. I have sixty-one, soon to be sixty-two.
    I have quite a few other plants so my spouse doesn't really notice the orchids.

    I have just over 30. Three of them are dendrobium kingianum. I haven't quite figured out how to bloom them so they keiki like crazy. I have taken to putting the keikis on just about anything since they grow like weeds here. I figure this summer is going to have me adding four or five more kingianum mounts! I have others that need dividing, but I don't see myself selling them or giving them away. I'll just experiment with growing methods until my little condo deck becomes a forest of orchids!

    Yvonni, my greenhouse is a modest 4x8. I have to build an overwintering room in the basement in a month or two. Got all the stuff, just have to get to it. I would have been stuck at 69 orchids but I accidentally broke part off my dancing lady, but it's in a pot now and doing well...

    Bravo Cathy!! My thoughts exactly. At my last count, when I reached 200, and thought I was done, I suddenly realised that I had not counted the hanging Vandas and some other tables tucked under the trees, so I stopped the count, and just declared Ratts!!!!! refuse to count them again, and have added many since then.

    I am with you Cathy. My last count was 200 and that was in March. I have added a lot since then and refuse to count again. Am afraid if I knew I would quit buying and that isn't about to happen. LOL

    That's more space then I have here . I mean at least I can keep them outside all year round but I can't quite keep them form either getting sunburn or drying out really fast , even the ones inside . I swear I live in the desert of the island .
