    Beautiful and healthy collection. They will bring you much enjoyment for a long time I am sure. One suggestion. They appear to be in ceramic pots. If they are transfer them to a clay or plastic pots. The glazes from a ceramic pot can kill them. Also make sure your pots have drainage holes. If they don't the orchids could rot and you would loose them. Just suggestions that will save you a lot of disappointment. Thanks again for sharing and welcome to the forum.

    Hi Gardenguyorchids,
    My orchids are in clear plastic pots and then are in a clay / ceramic pot holder. No part of the plant touches the floor of the outside pot. But I will be very vigilant from now on. Thanks for the advice though.

    Hi Sue and welcome. Youve made the right move. When youve finished tending to your new collection which is beautiful by the way you can spend ages perusing the site and make lists of new additions you want. Youve done it now. Will it ever stop!
