I will be using this thread to post pictures of new Orchids I add to my collection

Hello everyone. My real name is Monique. I was at one point a very competitive gamer and played almost every online MMO games for the PVP (player vs player, aka kill other people that play the game) This was a fun way to vent stress when I had a machine at work that decided to be a pain all day. I work for Magna and because of this I hate mustangs (Sorry if anyone drives one of these cars...but they have got to be the most pain in the *** car to make) Anyways back when I was a gamer I always used the name Cat and that is why I used it on this website.

This is my Seedling growing area. It's between 80-87 degrees F with 70-75% humidity during the day and 70-75 degrees F with 90-95 humidity at night. This is if I leave the door closed. I can open the door at a few different places to change the temperature and humidity.

I do have a couple computer fans in here.

Some Orchid Seedling Pictures.





A plant shelf that we made. This was a group effort to make with everyone in the house. I maybe guilty for using the plasma cutter at work. I still need to add another light for the lower shelf and some fans.

I'm also growing some dwarf Banana, Apple, Tangerine, and Lemon trees from seeds.

A Sunroom in progress that we added on to the house. It's getting there. I'll need to make a few more smaller plant shelves for this room.


A greenhouse also in progress. Still need to lay a floor down, and add stuff like plant shelves, fans, etc..

Some Cypripediums.

A berry garden with some strawberries, and blueberries.

It's Chico-Baby!!!! She follows me around like a shadow.

Great collection and greenhouse looks good. I was about to say where are you going to put all those seedlings when they grow up.

Thanks for sharing

Great collection! With a new sunroom and greenhouse, it looks like you have room to grow all you seedlings. You'll be surprised how fast these fill up!

Some seedling motivation.

The picture used belongs to Hugorchids.



The picture used belongs to Paphman910. The funny thing here is these seedlings are also from Paphman910. Double motivation maybe?

Good pickup! I love multis. I have a feeling that the Johanna Burkhardt is going to be something.

Is that an alienware keyboard?

Yes it is. I was at one point a very competitive gamer and got paid to play. I did not like all the sitting around I had to do playing so I know longer do that. I do still have an alienware area 51 computer and everything inside is liquid cooling including the video card. I also have the alienware keyboard, razer naga epic mouse and 2, 30 inch monitors.

That stonei is in bud again this year! It only have 4 flower buds this year. Did not expect it to flower till next year. I am going to self it and see if I will get viable seeds.

I like your computer! My case is a Coolermaster HAF 932 and it is a big boy box!

Computer is used for surfing orchid but it has a GTX 780 gaming card in it.

Cat - nice good choice on the computer. No wonder you have good taste in multis. I was thinking about getting an Alienware machine a couple of years ago. Ended up going with an iMac instead. I used to play game a lot a couple of years back befor work over took my time. Now I finally have time to just get back into plants.
