When I get a new orchid, I add its name to an Excel workbook. In this master "database," I also include when and where I acquired it, along with its purchase price. Recently, I've begun adding basic culture info to this document, including habitat, temp ranges, light, water, rest, etc. I transfer much of this information to the plant label so it's at my fingertips when out in the shadehouse. I also create an electronic folder for each species, and include any pertinent info such as the Bakers' culture sheet, the IOSPE page, other relavent info I find online, and all pictures I've taken of the plant. I always take a picture of the plant upon acquisition, after I've mounted it or otherwise prepared it for its life in my care. It's all pretty time consuming, but I enjoy this part of the hobby as much as fiddling with the plants themselves. Today I've embarked on a huge task: I am taking inventory and a picture of each plant residing in the Looking Glass and updating my master database. I'm curious what other people do to document their collection. Care to share?
