I want these 'chids!!!
By another.one at 2010-11-14 06:26
I am not particular about my orchids. I am one of those, "Ooh! Pretty! Must have~"-type gals. So sparklies, shinies, and blooms that delight my eyes are must haves. I do not have specific species/genre I stick to. All I want are orchids that are pretty in my big brown eyes and/or have green blooms. Heck, I like non-orchid plants too! Like the Hoya~ Pretty flowers in the shape of stars...
Orchids are an expensive hobby, I admit. Some require a little more 'atmosphere management' then my humble salary can afford and being 'exotic' they tend to be more expensive than the average rose bush or daisy. Which makes my failures with orchids cut a little deeper than most. But its okay!!! I love a challenge! Plus, I love to learn.
Through perusing other people's collections, books, and shows (however) I do tend to come upon an orchid that I want but can't afford. Or even an orchid I want but can't maintain. OR, even more so, I may be perusing internet shops and chance upon a page of orchids I wish to have... Alas, money does not grow on trees. If so, then those orchids will be listed here. That way passers by can make me offers (*hint hint*) but mostly for my own edification.
Due to limited living space ("I am a genie in a bottle~") I am trying to stay away from the bigger varieties and collect minis. Little space, maximized orchid collection! But I do have a fondness for bigger orchids as well.
But not only orchids! I love hydrangeas, Hoyas, euphorbia (did you know that the pointsettia is a part of the succulent family? specifically, euphorbia? O_o), and roses (I am dreaming of owning my own Disneyland rose bush... Have you smelled one before? It is absolutely divine!!! :: melts :: ). So, here is my so far list of dreams...

Christensonia vietnamica
Gastrochilus somai
Masdevallia scabrilinguis
Oncidium (Tolumnia) variegatum
Sievekingia fimbriata
