Whenever I make a sale or have some little success in life I like to reward myself with a new orchid. So the next orchid I plan on getting is the "Dick Smith Paradise Orchid" shown here. I have been working on making a sale of a buggy shaft - trying to get the measurements just right and although I have someone interested - I am not sure I am measuring it correctly. So back and forth it goes until I finally make a sale. I also have a few other things I am trying to sell - some large like real estate and some small like buggy parts. Sometimes it is really frustrating to push thru a sale and it can take days, weeks and months to get things done. Of course I have other rewards besides orchids in the interim but each orchid I look at earmarks to me something I have accomplished. Sort of like winning a prize. It gives me something to work towards besides just the attainment of wealth.

I used to have orchids many years ago but traveled so much I didn't have time to take care of them.
Now that I am home a lot more I finally have some time to do that and I wanted to share my experience with buying and growing orchids. Here you will see listings for places to buy orchids as well.
I used to have about 4 orchids but only have 1 left because the others got little white mealy bugs on them and died. I was not around to stop that from happening. Now I have a room mate that can spray them when I'm away with insecticidal soap and wipe off the leaves if needed.
I also like to grow roses now that I have a new place to plant them on the other side of the pool.
I can see them from the bedroom so planted many rose bushes that I can keep an eye on.
