    You are an addict if your kids look at your cell phone pictures and have to remind you to add some pictures of them to all those orchid pictures.

    I thought I was sick!! But by reading this thread I know I'm as normal as you all are!

    I would say that you're an orchid addict if you work for an orchid breeding company at a 9 to 5 base. Wake up in the morning and start the day with watering your own orchids, go to work and sow and clone orchids in the lab for 8 hours, go home and have a look at your orchids when the kids sleep ( by the way, I have confiscated one of our two bathrooms for my collection and my wife is fine with that ;-)), go downstairs again, lay on the couch and write down this on Orchidtalk.

    Is that so strange???

    That is what I do too. I hit the on button on the computer, pour a cup of coffee, and login to OrchidTalk.

    I press the button so that by the time I get my coffee poured, the computer is finally booted up. lol. I have patience with my orchids, but not with technology.

    You are an orchid addict if..

    If you brave giant frogs lurking in baskets even if you have a severe frog phobia.
