No, I'm not getting one. For those of you who do have a g/h, I just wondered it's dimensions and how many orchids you grow.

Hi Cinderella,

I have a 30 x 50 foot greenhouse and have more than one thousand orchids.

1.654 orchids / SF average. However data shows that Rick's GH is actually a very crowded orchid closet.:poke:
I have to crawl through it too. If I gain much more wieght I won't be able to even do that without constantly crashing into stuff.:sob:

I have allot of hanging stuff too, so its very 3D.

I also think that once Peter hit a thousand he stopped counting. (Could be 2000, and he's hiding the actuall number from his wife).

Wow you guys have some large collections. Makes me feel like a pipsqueak. There's always the future!

There's always a bigger fish out there so don't feel intimidated.

I found that somewhere around 100 plants you are just about guaranteed to have something in bloom year round. After that you're just feeding the addiction, getting into work later and later to take care of everything, until you have to quit your job and go pro.:evil:

Yep, if you get some mature plants you can have year-round orchid flowers at about 100 plants. And dont feel intimidated by these collections it's like money, you can never have too much. Most of these people still need [want] more plants. And Rick I'm 5'-10" and 160 Lbs and I knock over plants about 3 times a week when I bend over to water something, so don't worry about the weight.:rollhappy:
