I've been growing orchids for ~5 years now. I got started when one of my colleagues was leaving town for 6 months and since I was growing african violets, he stopped by on the way out of town and dropped off 6 or 7 orchids for me to cultivate. When he got back, several were in bloom (he rarely got them to bloom). As a gift he gave me a BLC Marcelus Koss 'Pink Marvel'. That started the addiction, and now I have more than 100 orchids. The first two years I grew indoors on east facing windows over humidity trays. Two years ago, I built an attached east facing greenhouse/sunroom which has bolstered my blooming rate.
