    You are an orchid addict if -

    at a restaurant you order a BLC instead of a BLT and don't even realize.

    You know you are an addict....when the very sight of a large greenhouse on the side of the road makes you want to stop and check if they have any orchids and when your passenger doesn't want to stop you have a pout fest all the way home.

    Umm, you know when you are the driver you can stop the car whenever you want and the passenger just has to lump it! You're just too nice, you should make sure that you get your way more often.

    You go to yard sales (took this hint from Cin and Mr. Hicks) and ask, "Do you have any orchids for sale?" No orchids for me yet, but I've gotten orchid fertilizer, orchid pots, clay pots, and a few "well, it's dead, but if you want it....."

    Ooooh didn't hear of this one yet, but it seems to make sense though. Definitely worth a try.

    I just loved reading this thread!!! Here is mine:
    When you keep buying more and more orchids and every time you say to yourself "that's the last one for this month..." and after a few days when the orders arrive you start thinking of a good explenation: how come the order is so big and "wasn't it the last one that came last week?!" And orders keep coming... start hiding packages... Soon after that when something gets noticed you answer: " Don't you remember that one?!!!"

    You know you're an orchid adict when -

    1. you have a baby orchid seedling that you cart around with you the whole day (i have a little Paph randsii next to me at the moment)

    2. you crazily think that blowing air on it will mean that it will get more carbon dioxide (do u think this will work?)

    3. you talk to this little one about growing big and strong and going to shows and meeting other orchids when it is all grown up!
