I have a few phalaenopsis, oncidiums, quite a few african species and even more plants without ID. :rolleyes: I don't actually know the names, and I should really start recording what I have. I love orchids almost as much as I do neps, but not quite :wink:

I have two Phalaenopsis hybrids, one Miltonia hybrid and jewel orchid Ludisia discolor. Hopefully I will find more tropical orchids to grow. Especially looking for Paphiopedilum, Oncidium, Dendrobium, Vanda and Vanilla hybrids and species. Orchids are my favourite noncarnivorous plants. :D

I grow a range of Australian terrestrial orchids as well as a few of our native epiphytes. The other main group that I am interested in is the Brazilian rupicolous Laelia species and their allies. I've got bits and pieces of other groups such as a number of Coelogyne sp. and Mexican Laelia.
