That is a lovely colorful collection. I started a serious collection of orchids after being lucky enough to get them to continue to re-bloom in multiple garden windows my old house had. Then I was gifted a bunch from others. So many that I converted a garden shed into a greenhouse to hold them all. That led to other plant collecting that grew into a pretty big hobby, and one that I attribute heavily to my general sense of well-being. I never mind the hours spent tending to plants, as I am thinking about nothing but the task at hand. I'm a big over-thinker that can struggle with being "in the moment". There is also something about the tending that is rewarding if you manage to start a plant from a small cutting that ends up growing larger, staying healthy, etc.

I relocated twice in the last 4 years, and each time I gave away a good portion of both my outdoor, and indoor plants. Keeping only what I thought may survive the moving process, and the change in climates.

Only houseplant I have currently is a quite old Christmas Cactus that was started for me by my cousin, from a plant her mom (my aunt) had started from a very old plant that our grandma (aunt and my Dad’s mother) had in her house. It was there in my earliest memories.

I’m hoping to be able to propagate a piece or two of mine to give to my daughter and daughter-in-law or grand daughters. I am not a very green thumb person, though. That gene seems to have passed over me.

I’ve had my oldest orchid for about a year and a half. It looks very healthy but hasn’t rebloomed. I just moved it from a west window to an east window a few weeks ago, and low and behold...a flower stalk is peaking up. Yay.

Yay. That's the ticket. You changed up the light conditions.

With the daylight getting shorter and shorter now all of my orchids are just starting to produce their flower spikes and I've started training the earliest spikes to go in the direction I want. But they're actually all rather late starting their spikes this year (I think because the heat and drought we had in the summer set them back) and I don't anticipate any of them to be blooming before New Year's Day.

My cattleya orchid "Serendipity" is blooming, first rebloom in about 5 years. Lovely fragrance. Was given to me in Sarasota FL by someone in my online garden group about 10 years ago, brought to Charlotte NC 3 years ago. Will try to post photo if I can figure out how to do it.
