    I grow slipper orchids (Paphiopedilum and Phragmagenium) and the Pleurothallid alliance orchid species such as Dracula, Masdevallia, Pleurothallis, porroglossum, etc.
    I also like Aroids such as Amorphophallus. I have recently obtained the A. titanum or "corpse flower/largest flower in the world"-unfortunately it's only 5" high this year! Other aroids like Symplocarpus, Dracunculus, Arisaema, Anthuriums, Alocasia...
    plus: some sort of fan palm, Calathea, Nematanthus, Salvia divinorum, Irises and Jasmine. I also just got some white Daturas that I picked from the gardens at my job. The lanscapers thought they were weeds and gonna cut em down but the daturas they had last year set seed and these were what grew this year out of the cracks in the sidewalk and edge of the garden! I love free plants!

    I also have a lot of unexpected plants like ferns that just arrived as spores with other things and spontaneously germinated. I got a large unsearched bag of seashells from Haiti and I found a large undamaged woody seed in there so I'm gonna try to germinate it to see what might grow out of it![img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Maybe it`ll be an extinct flesh eating carnivore that eats cows!(not gonna happen but let me know if it does) That would be cool.

    lol Steve. Yeah, I grow some of those things you listed too.

    I have a staghorn fern. They are pretty easy growers.

    And yay for chili peppers! Habaneros and chipotles!

    I have a couple of orchids (passing interest), various house plants.

    I have started to get different varieties of lillies for the garden...I do love lillies.

    Also, peppers are fun to grow. Habenero are great! I have currently orange habeneros and scotch bonnets....maybe I'll branch out into other peppers when I have more room.
