Oncidium. Lack of pests, rapid growth, amount of flowers and how long they last. Quickly make specimens. Grow and flower anywhere under nearly any conditions. Hard to beat.

I'm fond of Cattleyas since I seem to be able to provide for them well and am well rewarded for my efforts.

My favorite alliance is paphiopedilum. I love the strange, but beautiful blooms. I especially love Paph. sanderianum. I find them easy to grow and there is such a variety of green leaf and mottled leaf paphs.

Vandas. Tough and they have few insects. I find them the easiest orchid to grow.
