I have had an interest in orchids since the age of 14. At this time in my life, interest was somewhat fleeting, and I had about 10 plants which I grew in a tree. I had lost interest in orchids for a number of years since then and about half of these plants went to orchid heaven. It has only been in the last 5 years which I have reignited my interest in orchids…this was started by a trip to the JODOS winter show, where I bought a division of Coelogyne trinervis. I guess following this I succumbed to “orchid mania”.
