Few years ago, I start collecting orchids. Back than orchid was rare in shops in Croatia and quite expensive. Now, they are much easier for buying. I still have about 10 orchids in living room, some of them smuggled from Holland :-). Unfortunately, I haven't got enough time to "talk" to them and care about them properly. Maybe that should be one of my promises for next year - find more time for flowers.
You can see some of my orchids on this pages, along with advices how to grow them.
