I recommend looking up posts from TOMMYMIAMI here. His photography of miniatures and growing information are amazing.

He is no longer active, and no longer listed in the membership, but his posts are reachable via Search. Put "TOMMYMIAMI" in the Search, above. Or use Advanced Search for a particular species.

Definitely cheaper than antique cars or fancy sports cars or designer sneakers... (Think how many orchids you could buy for the price of a Maserati...)

Some people don't need to think that maybe hahaha. Those super rich people can buy their own collection of orchid nurseries and/or glass/bush-houses for their orchids, along with the staff to tend to the orchids hehehe

Although - some orchids out there - somewhere in the world ------ probably cannot be bought even if somebody wants to buy. Priceless in the eye of beholder.

Someone talk some reason into me.

Love,

I can see the situation. I fail to understand the problem!!!

In my case anyway, the problem is that soon I won't have any money to buy them with!
