    This thread is really amusing .... I love it!

    You know you are an addict.... when you know you practically do not have any more growing space left (or getting crowded) but you still can't resist and buy more orchids when you go to the plant store or garden market .... then when you get home with your new plants you get problematic all over as to where you can find a good, well-lighted place in your grow area to stick your plant(s) in! Geesh!

    Hmmm .... what else can I think of?

    You know you are an addict.... When you arrive at the office and the first thing you do is check out the rv-orchidworks webpage instead of checking your office email or personal messages and keep the rv-orchidworks webpage hidden in the background as you do your office work on the computer. (LOL! I work with the I.T. department in a large school and I'm guilty of this).

    Funny...I was just thinking along these lines...

    You know you're an addict when you have several orchid pots in the dishwasher right along with your dishes...I was thinking to myself a few minutes ago when I put another big clay pot in there that it might be a good thing I'm single- LOL!

    LOL Who knows?! Depending on the other half, you may end up with all the dishes in the sink because the dishwasher is full with orchid pots...LOL

    You know you're addicted when you arrange to car pool to an Orchid Fair but choose the person who has the 4WD to drive so there is more space for orchid purchases

    you know you are an addict if,

    you wake up by 3am, only coz a few rain drops fall and you bring all your babies outside.

    and your girlfriend asks you what you did, and you feel like being cought in the act!

    ...when you leave work early to catch the mailman so you can get your new purchase in with the rest before your saner half comes home.

    When you find a plant dead in its pot so you buy 2 or 3 to replace it.

    You're also an addict if you have compiled a list of all the orchid vendors around you or your immediate area.

    AND

    If you drive 200 miles just to look at orchids (which I might be doing this Saturday).
