oh GOODNESS I just placed a massive order with Ooi Sun Leng nursery in Penang. I live in Singapore. Wish me luck! they have super exotic species and hybrids and I am in love with Bulbos and Dendrobes now. This hobby is getting seriously expensive

LOL... Good luck! This hobby has a way of taking your money, for sure! But there are far worse things in life money could be spent on. Can't wait to see pics of your order when it arrives!

Well you got an overwhelming amount of replies! I just have to say don't be afraid of buying online, that's where you will find some of the best quality orchids. And check out eBay too. Look at seller reviews/rating though. I sell plants there every so often.

Yeah this isn't a cheap hobby for some (or maybe most). I almost spent $1000 on slipper orchid species at an orchid show.

Thanks Paul, will def ck that out. I also found an orchid nursery locally and a local orchid society. As I'm not the most social person, I'll probably check out the nursery first. I still have a couple plants I'm struggling to keep alive so I don't have any immediate plans to buy any more until I feel my chances of killing any future plants is much slimmer. Thanks to you ALL! I really appreciate all the feedback and advice 😀
