Since being bitten by the Paph bug a couple of years ago I have purchased somewhere in the region of 40 flasks. 16 flasks have been roths from orchid Inn, Tokyo Orchid Nursery and Taiwan sources. Here is a photo of part of my roth bench at present in my glasshouse. I think I may need more room and a visit to a shrink. Just can't help buying these every time I think I see something better. Oh well, I suppose there are many worse things I could be doing.

You can always sell off some and make back the money you spent on the flasks.

Otherwise yes, you are going to need a loooot more room!! :D

You're going to be really attuned to Roth culture, which is awesome. Maybe you'll be able to part with some. I can relate on a certain level. I bought my first flask 3 years ago and I'm very in tune with those 20 little orchids. Don't think I could part with any of them without seeing their flower first.

Thanks. Yes that is my problem. I just don’t want to give any away until I have flowered them.

in response to "there are worse things I could do", I offer a quote from an old orchid grower I met several years ago.
He said to me.....
"Son, as my first wife used to tell, there are worse habits a husband could have besides growing orchids....... but not many"
:evil:
