    Happy looking flowers. Think I like the Jack Tonkin the best. However, I'd have to buy the plant in bloom, enjoy the flower, and trade it away before it died [which would be inevitiable if I kept it].

    Where about in Novi, if you don't mind be being Very nosie? And do you have a specfic type of orchid you prefer? Mine used to be phals but now I want to try my hand at other types....not really interested in the smaller flowers but then it takes LOTS of space to have big flowers...big flowers bigger plants

    Whatever I can get to grow & bloom. Pretty much a hodge-podge of hybrids and species. Catt alliance probably makes up the highest % overall. Used to do a lot of Dens years back but then when I moved from St Joe to Marshall the dens went downhill fast. Now only have a couple of those.

    Indeed, which is why I've had to focus the majority of my interests on mini & compact plants.
