Hello I'm Brandon.

I started with orchids at about 12 years old when I pirated my mom's garden center phal once it was past bloom. Managed not to kill it and kept it going for ten years. Always loved the reliability and bloom duration. I grew a few plants till I finished college and then my careers took me across the globe without the time/space to do orchids justice.

Well the orchid bug hit me again and my life is less global than before.....so I can grow again! :dance:

I started with seven sad looking box store castoffs last September 2015.....joined my orchid society at same time.....and now have 60 plants ranging from my 3 buck chucks to some of Peters jaw dropping stem props....currently plotting out how to make more space for all the others I plan to get! :D

What can I say, beauty is addictive and Im quite pleased to be back.

Welcome back. Phalaenopsis is very diverse. You will find something that strikes your fancy. If not. You could try creating something new for yourself.

My name is Dennis. I am from southwest Florida, Ft Myers area. I started a few years ago just because I liked them and a lady I had worked for had a few in her porch. I started with 2 and has seriously grown in size and my collection. I am not very savvy with their names but I have a few pictures. Mine live outside year round and love it. This year I received about 100 % bloom from each plant. With my 3 1/2 year old orchid absolutely blooming beyond my wildest dreams. well 3 and 1/2 years since I have had it. Most of the other orchids I have collected were rescues from Walmart and various nurseries when they mark them down. Please let me know what you think. I am super new to growing and have been basically winging it for the most part.

Dennis - welcome. We are a casual but specialized group. We are here because we like phalaenopsis but we also grow a few other orchids. Rescue orchids are great - they are usually clones (no names give at time of sale) and nice flowers. This is a place to share photos of your flowers and also discussions on what works for you specific growing environment.

Hi! My name is Lisa

I start working with orchids in 1999 since today :) My basic interest - Subtribe Pleurothallidinae. But we have a lot of novelty - type Phalaenopsis hybrids. Our orchids grow in two GH, one - warm and other - cool/coold.
