I bought my first orchid in 2014. It was a closeout phal from the grocery store, but it rebloomed for me the next year, and I was hooked. My collection has grown to include a little of everything, but it's mostly paphs and catts. Recently I've gotten into Catasetums and Cycnoches too.
I live in Wisconsin, so my plants spend half the year in my basement under lights. It's worked pretty well so far.

I say everything is my favorite when it's in bloom. Delightfully Wood was my first paph.
