There's too many to count.

I did a head count of my plants the other day, and I realized I've hit 40. And I have some in the mail at the moment. My husband thinks I've gone completely bonkers, but I think there are too many beautiful orchids out there to pick just a few!
So, fellow orchid lovers, I'd like to get an idea of where my obsession falls on the sliding scale. Am I just an enthusiast, or have I hit "hoarder" territory?
How many orchids do YOU have?
I don't know !
Last time I counted I had 380 varieties and 1100 orchid plants this count was in Nov. 2011
I think I had around 175 plants in june, but I will pass 200 in September...
You're still on the safe side of nuts. You will know when you've gone off the deep end if ever you're forced to choose between your husband and your plants--and your husband LOSES.
Positive side: orchids make great company. Better than...*ahem*...some people.
Hehee...I'm so enjoying this. And I feel more normal already....
I started in April 2010 with my first Phalaenopsis and I had my orchids inside at the beginning by the window. Then I went to a few orchid shows and there I found a nursery that is only 1/2 hour away from me which I now visit periodically, then I bought more and more different orchids. My husband bought me a few as well. Now my orchids live outside on the patio 24/7 and I have now 63 of them. I have a good mix and still lots of space as I have an arbor, a lattice corner stand and several flower stands. I only killed 1 orchid so far which was very on the beginning. I am so glad that I found you all here as I am learning every day how to better take care of my babies by participating on orchid talk. Thank you.
I would have voted if you had a button for ... just plain craziness
I've added about 48 in the last few months. I'm at an even 70 right now...
