    Yeah I think my husband might be a bit worried about that lol. He always thought I had too many plants in general. Right now though I'm taking it kinda slow. Since I haven't been on here I've moved from Barbados to Canada so I'm not used to the weather as yet and don't think it would be a good idea to just run out there and start collecting again. So I will give it some time then I might take it a bit slow and maybe just get one and see how at goes.

    It is always a good time to get more orchids.

    Currently just a bit over 70 orchid wise .... but then there are all my non-orchid plants.

    Oh dear... if I counted all my "non-orchid" plants, I could probably go ahead and register my house as a botanical retreat and charge admission! In an effort to prove how insane of a "grower" I am, my husband recently forced me to stand in the dining room and count all the plants in just that one room. There were 46.

    But hey, at least our air is REALLY clean!!

    I only counted the ones indoors not the ones in the green house. There are to many of those to count.

    I have about 175 and a new one arrives tomorrow. In Game of Thrones the dread quote is "Winter is Coming". My dread starts tomorrow because "Re-potting is Coming".
