    Congrats! In reference to the large Cattleya, I am always so impressed at how some people can manage to make large Cattleyas grow "neatly" in a pot. I also like you have hung your Spanish moss. I have been trying to think of something for growing mine, I was going to string up a clothes line or something similar, but hadn't thought of just hanging them on hooks, duh. I think I'll put some nails in my fence.

    Hi from Atlanta, Valery! An impressive, and challenging starting collection! Even more impressive is your potting bench - which is the same one I have! However, due to various circumstances, mine lives in the living room, while yours seems to be situated in a more appropriate location. I'm loving it - lots of storage and plenty of places to put things - although I could probably use about 4 of them at this point. Wait until your collection REALLY gets going.

    Maura

    PS - I'll post a photo of mine once I clear off all the not-so-pretty fungicides and tools and other debris.

    Thank you all! Ever since I started reading around this forum I've been learning a lot! And I wanted to start with some of the ones that started it all (the obsession I mean and some that are just too pretty to pass).

    I have four more coming in the mail this Friday and that should keep me for a while (hopefully).
    They are:
    Phal. stuartiana 'Sogo' HCC/AOS
    Paph. niveum
    Vasco. Viboon Velvet 'Puffy Cloud' AM/AOS and
    Odcdm. Tiger Crow 'Golden Gate' HCC/AOS

    Thank you so much for your kind words and I'll definitely post some pictures if I can get anyone of them to bloom!
