    Well to each their own. Orchids are different, and I love them. You just have to learn what they need to take care of them, and because they grow so slow they are not cheap unless you buy them young then WAIT. LOL

    It's a labor of love and eventually you'll just do things with them based on looks, feel and weight.


    Umm.. Orchids that is. Not Women.

    Sharry Baby is a nice one. How about a brassia? Wicked spidery flowers.

    Brassia Hybrids are nice too. I have one in bloom right now, but they too take more light than a phal. I would say about as much as Sherry baby and any other in the Oncidium alliance.

    Lowes had at one point a pretty lavender Brassia hybrid. I picked it up with no label so I cannot tell you waht to look for, but it is nice when it is in bloom.

    I'd go with Onc. Twinkle. It's a miniature Oncidium that grow like a weed, and should flower reliably in many different conditions. And you can get a plant in flower for about 15 bucks. Plus, the flowers are fragrant, and come in white, red, yellow, and pink.

    Onc. Sharry Baby would be a close number 2, for the same reasons, except it's not a miniature. Flowers will be different combinations of red, white, and yellow, depending on the clone.

    Third choice would be about any Brassavola hybrid. They're all fairly reliable growers, but like to dry out a bit more between waterings. Mine hasn't stopped growing since it came to live with me at the beginning of the summer. It's got well-formed flowers, and is very fragrant at night. Flowers come in all colors, sizes, etc. depending on the hybrid.

    All three types of plants should be cheap to buy at blooming size, from almost anywhere. Just look around a bit. Hope this helps...
