I live in Guam, originally from California. There, I grew orchids for many years, mainly Cymbidiums, my favorites. Can’t grow them in Guam, temps too warm.
About 3 yrs ago, while I was shopping, my puppy German shepherd destroyed 36 of my favorite orchids, I went into shock and swore off them, but can’t be without them, so I started again.
Have 62 so far.
My growing area is a enclosed screen patio facing NE (front) with West sun, (left side) after 2:00 PM till sunset. I grow mostly Cattleya Alliance,(Lc, SLC, BLC) Also Phals, Paphs, Vandas (just few, they don’t seem to like me) and some Oncidiums.
I paint landscapes and flowers, do crafts and of course gardening. My husband also enjoys my Orchids and other flowers: Plumerias, Ginger, Hibiscus, Bougainvilleas, flowering trees and ferns. I grow them in 1/2 acre of land facing the ocean.
I also have a terrarium, (I’m always fascinated by miniature plants and flowers) and I grow
in it: miniature African Violets, Ferns, Orchids, Moss, Vines and different kind of ornamental and colorful plants.
