    Default More Orchids? Now enough is enough!!!!!

    I attended the Houston Orchid Society meeting for the first time (joined) and something has got to change! I am thinking a 12 step program is in order. Some how I wound up with these things in my car when I awoke from drugs that were obviously slipped into my sprite!

    1. Cattleya warscewiczii
    2. Cattleya schroederae
    3. Encyclia profusa
    4. Encyclia cordigera v. Semialba
    5. Schomburgkia splendida

    Hunches shoulders and hopes for an intervention,

    Miller

    This forum IS the intervention. And there are less than twelve steps! There is only one...accept that you have a problem and go with it!

    You will realize orchids are more potent than Vodka LOL ! Great buys, looking forward to their blooms.

    This is an addiction stronger than vodka. There is no cure, there is no 12 step, there is only the "drug" of buying one more. And you will always find room for one more. Just sit back and enjoy. I went from one to well over 100 in a year.

    Nice additions! Encyclia profusa is such a beautiful species, one of my favorite Encyclias.
