    I have been growing Orchids since the 1980's. As I aged and lived life, my orchids suffered some; and they aren't all with me still sadly. I do have beautiful pictures of most of them, and I enjoy looking at them frequently. My two favorite Orchids from the 80's are Lc. Puppy Love True Beauty' HCC/AOS and LC. Rojo. The Lc. Puppy Love blooms well in the Fall , and the flowers are so beautiful and fragrant. My Lc. Rojo is in bud right now(Feb 9). I have purchased new plants in the last few years, and I am having good luck with most, but some have failed to be vigorous. I am not sure if it is my fault or theirs. Buying orchids online is new to me, and I have had mixed luck purchasing good plants. I belong to the AOS, and I read and study quite a lot.
