The size of your collection is not important, it will grow like it has for the rest of us! You have some very nice plants - think quality over quantity!

I love Catt. walkeriana. World of Orchids in Kissamee used to have some great plants, I think that's what made me get into orchids.

Me, too Eric. Compact growth, huge flower (relatively), and amazing fragrance. I need to find a var. tipo with strong parentage.

Look up walkeriana 'Limrick'. It was a semi-alba I believe, really nice. Now all you need are some Paphs and Phrags!

Thanks guys!

Rick: I grow all species mounted. All on cork panels or, believe it or not, 2x4 pieces (they love these). The aclandiae's love horizontal mounts.

NYEric: I'm not a big fan of walkerianas that have the dolosa in the background, like the albas and Limrick. In fact I may trade my one alba seedling as some point.

You definitely need some paphs and phrags. When I first started growing orchids I thought I didn't like them, but then I got a paph, and the rest is history.

Nice collection Chris. I started with a Catt as well from a gardening store in Dawson Creek, BC, Canada. They were getting out of the orchid side of things and I bought it for $20. They didn't even have the full proper name for it. I got it to bloom three years in a row, won a prize in the local flower and garden show and was hooked on orchids ever since. Alas, the Catt died on me but I have since had loads of dendrobiums, an oncidium, several phaleonopsis and a coelogne cristata. I now have two paphs - a maudiae and a St Swithins. The Maudiae is just about ready to bloom so I'll post a pic when it opens.
I would list my whole collection but I don't have the full names of any of them. I'm finally getting a little more serious about tracking them and keeping them in order.
