    Tom: You probably think I over state or over compliment, but your posts can and usually are stunning! I don't know how you do it or where you get all these orchids, but you have a amazing collection! AL

    Thanks.

    Small and odd ones, some may call them weeds, are the majority of my collection. I normally get plants from private collectors, oversea vendors(at shows) and few good domestic vendors. Sometimes, if I am lucky, I may receive few good ones from a plant trade or a gift from orchid friends. It takes years to...
    I still keep few Cattleya, Paphs and Phals in my collection so that I still can call myself an orchid grower.

    It is an easy grower and bloomer, intermediate to cool, shady and mosit(but not wet).
