I have been ordering some new plants (little by little). However, tomorrow this will change as I will be ordering 16 more plants from 6 different Thai sellers located in different Thai provinces. I am waiting for 4 plants to arrive today. Anyway, when I first moved to Khon Kaen I brought only 17 plants with me. After I place the orders tomorrow, this will bring my total number of plants up to 68 (still a modest number compared to others). But I am happy and my plants also seem very happy. Aerides houlettiana is a species native to Thailand (and other countries) and it grows wild in different areas of Thailand. I am very fortunate to be in Thailand to be able to obtain wild species that the sellers have for sale. This plant arrived with one set of blooms and another set having buds.
