Growing Orchids

I have been growing orchids for about 10 years. It has never really been a serious pursuit. For example, I have never gone to the extent of providing the ideal environment for a particular variety or invested in the kind of equipment for assured success. Still, I've managed to keep many specimens thriving and even occaisionally bring them into bloom. It is therefore a giant coup for me to have two plants in bloom at the same time! One is an ordinary phalaenopisis and the other a hybrid of various varieties. So, only 10 years to get this photograph!!!

Very nice photograph it is too! I particularly like the smaller orchids that a bit look like tiger lilies.
