    Default Thank you, ladies.

    I used to have four of them; one languished and is now almost dead.

    (This is always the scary question for a windowsill grower out of control...)

    Just how big is your collection, Nelson? gasp!

    Wow! That's a lot of repeats, Nelson!

    Do you have a few species you have a bunch of, with lots of other solo types? Or do you just have a few of everything?

    I'm also curious if you have any non-native plants in your collection.

    Thanks for not minding my questions!

    Best,
    Julie

    I have more than 30 Phalaenopsis equestris and more than five Vanda sanderiana, Vanda merrillii, Vanda lamellata, Vanda luzonica, Arides quinquevulnera, and Aerides odorata, primarily because these plants have several varieties each.

    My Encyclia cochleata had been divided into three, and I ended up giving two to my cousin because the first one I gave him was stolen. I have only one Phalaenopsis bellina because the two previous ones croaked. My Phalaenopsis violacea alba is in the ICU.

    Most plants I have only one or two.

    LOL - Well that's not too bad! Wilford Neptune really freaked me out - with 36 different clones of Dend. king - and that doesn't even tell you how many he has of each!

    For a compulsive-obsessive type like me, he demonstrates a nearly Platonic state that I could only ever dream of...

    Glad you're still one of us, Nelson. But be careful!

    That is a whole lot of collection!

    Dendrobium anosmum alone had a lot of varieties , In my case i have around a dozen plants of Dendrobium anosmum which includes the common, var superbum, var dearei, var huttonii ( but acording to some it is a semi-alba)
    , the darker colored etc...


    BTW, Can Encyclia cochleata live in lowland places like Novaliches?
    According to a horticulturist most of the Encyclia cochleata being sold are hybrids and not species, also the Brassavola nodosa, i was tempted to buy one but after seeing the plant label , i did not buy the plant.

    Derling orchids had some of those but it is a hybrid.
