I’m going to brag on Patrick because I know he won’t. I met him for the first time at the Va. Orchid Soc. Show in Richmond last weekend. His knowledge and enthusiasm are nothing short of amazing! He has not been growing orchids very long, as he is just 14!!! He is apprenticing at Chadwick’s and has a tremendous hunger for learning how to do it well. It warmed my heart that Art Chadwick is mentoring Patrick and to see someone his age so passionate and knowledgeable. Here’s to a very bright future ahead in all things orchid, Patrick!! Welcome into the family!!

Oh Patrick, I can barely remember 14. How large is your collection? You appear to have a strong Cattleya species collection, which is what a nice group of us have an interest in.
About 280 Orchids it keeps going up and down and then plants get split and extra pieces don't get sold or given away immediately so there are multiple of the same thing but I counted every one in December and it was 287 so I say about 280. Thank you for your question,
Patrick

Welcome on board, Patrick!
From up North on the European continent
kind regards,

And a warm welcome from way down in the southwest corner of Europe, where I'm testing cattleyas among others for the ability to thrive outdoors year round. It's great you found a passion early that will stay with you for life!

And your growing
We have a greenhouse with a 5 degree C minimum so like 40 degrees F in winter so that is where all the orchids go in summer. plants that don't mind the cool stay there all year long like winter resting dendrobiums cymbidiums Mexican laelias some bulbophillums and others. the rest of the orchids come in the house October through May and live on bright windows and under mars hydro grow lights. So what type of orchids do you grow I'm guessing some catts for sure, how large is your collection and where do they grow?
Patrick
