    Oh Dear I can't decide but it would be a mixture of Catts and Dens and maybe a Max and an Onc. Oh never mind I could never pick.

    Cin, you have to pick! But you do not have to actually do it!!! You can have 100 each of the 3, but you get only 3 species/hybrids.

    Oh man--I'm going to need a couple of days to decide this . . . this is a tough question, even if it is only hypothetical. Although it helps me to know that in this hypo I can have hundreds of the three plants I choose

    (1) A big white phal -- like my current Phal Frozen Polaris x Phal Cygnus Empire or Phal Norman's Mist
    (2) A big dark vanda -- like V. Pachara Delight or V. (Dona Rome Sanchez x Bitz's Heartthrob)
    (3) Here, I'm really torn--either my Psych. Kalihi or Blc. California Girl.

    Yeah, I'm really struggling to pick just three. I realized after I made my list that I actually named six plants.
