    Hello, I'm fairly new to orchids but have already started a small collection. Can't wait to learn more and hopefully turn this into a life long obsession.

    Welcome. I'll bet that your small collection gets larger quickly.

    Thank you so much for the warm welcome. I'll begin to post more as I build up the collection. I'm sure I'll have many many questions. As of now I have 4 phals and 4 new orchids shipping in. Growing very fast indeed!

    LexusNexus, I'm always shy! I'm doing well just to have made an account and an intro post! I posted a story yesterday of my Phal. Baldan's Kaleidoscope. Which was my first (2 yrs ago) and it's in bloom. I believe Marni moved it to the orchid hybrid section. I have 3 other phals. that I will be sure to post tomorrow when I can take pictures.
