I just got back into the hobby after about 5 years of everchanging living arrangements. in a short time ive finally gotten up to 12 plants, only two of which are slippers, but hey - im workin on it :D

Dendrobium nugentii
NOID Vanda
NOID Lc.
Encyclia tampensis var. alba
Epidendrum (encyclia) Memoria Young c. lott 'newberry'
Psychopsis Mendenhall 'Papa's dream' AM/AOS x Mendenhall FCC/AOS (in spike)
Maxilaria variabilis dark
Psygmorchis pusilla
NOID caniferous dend.
NOID Odontoglossum (in spike)

And of course the slippers

Paph. Maudiae 'Los Osos' x Cyberspace 'Netscape'

NOID Phrag - I believe it to either be a Bel Croute or Grande - it was at a local nursery on sale out of bloom, and unlabeled, but they had a few of these varieties, and i dont imagine it would be something else. 2 big growths on it, with one about 7 inch tall new growth that im looking forward to blooming. I'm crazy about long petals :evil: (hence my unhealthy obsession with sanderianum 'jacob's ladder' - i actually lose sleep...)

I'm sure you'll be adding you list. ;)

Sanderianum's my favorite! It's pictures of that plant that got me hooked. Hopefully, I'll be able to own and grow one soon enough. :)

Nice list, and don't worry about the slippers, they seem to multiply on their own

Maxilaria variabilis is lovely, I'd love to see pics of yours when it blooms
