    New orchid additions...



    I decided since I only had one cattleya I should add a few more. I added 20. I had to go buy the new shelf. Don't know what I was thinking.

    These will need to be up potted soon looks like.

    They look very healthy. I'll have to buy some 20 myself sooner or later. They do seem to need some repotting done since there are so many roots growing out of the pot.

    When I go orchid shopping, I don't think too clearly, either.

    I think it's very charitable of you to adopt so many deserving plants at one time. You have now established your own 'orchidage' and twenty orphan plants have found a home. AL

    I have to agree with Kathi, it would have been a very lonely shelving unit with just one orchid on it and that top shelf, just begging for companions...

    I like the way that you put it. From now on I'll tell my mom that I adopted it instead of buying it. Let see if she buys that.
