    I think I am really done this time or at least increasing the size of my collection. I want to replace my current dends with antelope types, I've read they love the heat so they should do well in my conditions!

    Very lovely scriptum! All my Grammas do is to produce vegetative growth - 3 years and not a single bloom.

    If you can afford it, what to control? Buy them all:-)

    Did you acquire it locally, or did you order it online?

    Don't worry, you'll stop buying when you run out of room. Then you have to make a really serious decision, move or get rid of some orchids to make room for new orchids... a serious problem indeed. - martha
