I have been taking care of my orchids for a few years now, my first was a beautiful Phaleonopsis given as a birthday present in 1998. Then in 1999 I received a beautiful Cattleya as a birthday present. Then in 2003, I received a second Phal as a birthday present from my husband, and finally, my latest two additions came from our honeymoon trip to Kauai - a Mokara and a dendrobium.

We just moved to a new home, so I am still exploring the best place for my plants, and am considering switching to S/H... we'll see!
