    Vanilla isn't impossible to bloom here in Pennsylvania, just close to it!

    Since we all have the orchid 'problem', we are all mentally challenged.

    It's hard but I am at about 100 orchids and running out of room, so I haven't bought any recently. I am enjoying watching and learning from the ones I have already brought into the asylum.

    But I am taking my mounted and paphs to the baby sitter next week while I go visit family back east and they are our orchid nursery, so it may be hard to not come home with one more than I went with.

    I grew up working in my dad's garden that took up about 1/4 acre. We used to put some of the nastiest stuff on the garden in the spring and then a coat of dead leaves and grass clippings in the fall. Trips to fill the truck with horse manure to put on the garden. lol And for the simple ground orchids and vines like vanilla...to me it is second nature to throw egg shells, potato trimmings, banana peel, etc. into my pots for normal plants. Now you will never catch me doing that with a standard Cattleya. But ground orchids or tropical plants that are in dirt...they never get 100% dirt in my back yard.
