    I wish...all my orchids would just spike, for pete's sake!! It's about time some thing other than roots, kekieis and pbulbs/canes start growing. I'm gonna start feeding em to my rabbits if they don't get their roots in gear!

    I wish I could have an orchid nursery that would be profitable enough to support a no kill shelter for cats and dogs, it's a dream.

    oh stateless, i had such a depressing nightmare kitten adoption i put myself through this summer. i'm so torn up i may never have pets again. the 2 guys were not tame, not healthy at all, and peed all over. 3 weeks of hell, and 3 more of cleaning up. now i'm not sure if i trust another kitten from a rescue place. even a normal kitten might still smell traces of urine and start peeing everywhere. they were beautiful, but i had to take them back, because anywhere else would have killed them and i could not afford thousands of dollars to try to keep them alive. and it was because the b**** running the place was overmedicating with the wrong medications, destroying their kidneys and doing nothing for their ailments. it was horrible. i'm trying to get the place shut down. i'm out hundreds of dollars and just want to cry every time i see a cat. and that was right after having to put my 2 elderly cats to sleep.

    ok, orchids... i wish orchids would flower all year round.

    I wish orchids will bloom all the time and that no pests or diseases (virus, fungus) will never happen.

    There are so many things that I could wish for! However, most of those things would diminish the sense of accomplishment I have when I have gotten a plant to do its thing. I just wish I had the time, money, and facilities to take on even more orchid related responsibilities! I do love having beautiful flowers to place here and there when we have friends for dinner. More than that I love succeeding with a plant that is uncommon or "difficult".Posted via Mobile Device

    I wish--my landlord would cut the spruce tree that is encroaching on the west window where I grow my orchids.
    It is getting shadier every year. I knew this was coming so I started buying Paphs instead of Dendrobiums a couple of years ago.

    I wish I had a bigger grow area.
    I wish I could get a watering regime figured out for smaller root orchids.
    I wish my pets didn't love my orchids as much as I do.
