Wink How much is your collection worth?

Just curious...how much do you estimate your collection to be worth? In other words, how much money have you spent on orchids?

I have a small collection, but I've calculated its worth to be $484.90, not counting the plants that died in the past or the shipping charges for plants I got through online vendors.

I'm pretty sure larger collections are worth thousands of dollars, and growing in value with the addition of each new plant.

I did an estimate on my collection a few years ago, wish I hadn't, it worked out that I could have had a 6 mths trip around the world.

Calculating how much I've spent on my orchids is something that I'm afraid to do. I don't want to know how much I've spent, LOL! I don't get expensive orchids, but a few here another few there probably adds up to a substantial amount. I don't care how much I spent overall, what counts is the pleasure it brings me to pick out my next orchid and then take care of it until it gives me blooms!
