One plant only please!! Female
Default One plant only please!!

I know we've had polls about our favorite alliance, but I was looking at my orchids the other day and I was thinking about if I had to give up my entire collection and could only keep one plant what would it be?

My answer is my V. merrillii because it's species, I love the leaves, flower color and flower shape, and it's not in everyone's collection. I do have to say it was very hard to make a choice and I kept changing my mind! Lol!

Since I know some of you have pretty massive collections, I thought this would be an I interesting poll. Here's the question: If you could only keep ONE orchid in your collection what would it be and why would you choose that plant?

This is "IMPOSSIBLE" for me, I can't decide:-( I know that this is not rarest or most sought for plant, but I always admired Bulbophyllum Medusae, and when it is blooming, I go nuts, so my choice for today would be my Medusae

I agree that medusae is an awesome plant!! It is one of those plants that MAKES you stop to look at it, even if you're not an OA (orchid addict)!!

I do love pretty much all my Bulbophyllums, I do remember when starting with orchids, I went to google and when I heard this species name I searched, opened the google page with pictures and thought I went to some "SPACE GARDENING" section - they all looked to me like they are out of the Earth plants - and that's how it started. Again, they are pretty much one of the cheaper plants I do have, but I love them, and Medusae is my #1 :-)

If I could pick one plant, I wouldn't have all the others.

LOL @ Leafmite!
And I DO have a little Snickers bar in the fridge RJ.*hands it over*
My first loves are the dens then catt alliance, esp. encyclias. However, I keep coming back to my Ascda. Dong Tarn 'Red'. Had it forever, and it just keeps on going and blooming.
Sorry Den. Autumn Lace x and Rhy, digbyana.

Bulbos are very interesting! So many unique flowers and scents!! Lol! I love the "space gardening" reference!

I had to look up your Ascda. Dong Tarn 'Red', I can see why you love it so much!! It is a gorgeous color.

Hands down....Brassavola nodosa!!


Neat and tidy grower...grows very well w/little fuss or muss...blooms multiple times a years...gorgeous white flowers that last a long time and that I will never find boring....and it smells AMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZING.

I love a lot of different orchids and would seriously have trouble eliminating most of the others but if I had to...yep, B nodosa would be the one that stays.
