Red face My orchid list

I started a couple years ago buying bare root Cats - I have 3 large wooden baskets of them. They sure do multiply fast, don't they. Well, I *finally* got my first bloom a couple weeks ago, it arrived with holes in its pedals and died within a couple days -- but another shoot came at the same time the other was dying. OMG is is pretty - and smells heavenly! Large (about 5in across) in shades of lavender-orchid and fushia. Until December 07 these were the only orchids I had. Then came the holidays.

For Christmas my "bestest" friend gave me a gorgeous pot of dancing ladies (I think thats what they are referred to as) Yellow and brown in color. They just finished dying out about a month ago. I'm hoping they bloom again before it gets too hot, but prolly not.

With that gift she also gave me a gift certificate which I spent all on more orchids and then went absolutely crazy. I bought paphs, phals and dens. I think I've forgotten one ;-(

Since I really am new at growing these I came here to learn. I've spent the last couple days reading and absorbing. Whew -- my (bad) growing habits are much different than what I am learning here. And from what I have been reading here - I'm sure you'll be shocked at some of the things I do -- from watering & fertilizer to sun & shade.

Please be patient with me as I will likely have some off the wall questions. Just chalk them up to inexperience when you just can't believe what you're reading. ;-)

Thank you all in advance for having such a delightful place. I look forward to meeting you all.

My Updated Growing List

Now that I know what everyone means about orchids & the tags, I have made the proper list from the tags on my plants.

Cattleyas:
2 of my catt baskets which contained 3 bare root plants each are now tagless/NOID. The Florida sun beat them up long ago and I didn't realize their importance. Those plants are around 4-5 years old, one of which just bloomed for the 1st time. (the other one I burned but its recovering)
T3184 Blc Hawaiian Mini Island Carmela
T3931 Blc Love Knot x Digbyana Carmela
3714 LC Mem Robert Strait Blue Hawaii
T3701 Blc Hawaiian Night
T4337 Pot. Kozo's Scarlet vi-emi 6/15/06
TC066 Blc Mem Anna Balmores convex sm/toga 8/8/06
T3707 Blc Hawaiian Night Life Carmela
T3775 C. Penang 'Black Caesar' cluster purple

Phals:
P. Sogo Ray 'Sun' v Dlps Telda Pearl Bl** (*=not readable)
wk 25-07; F 22-06; PT 87
Dtps. Nobbys Pink Lady No. 1 x Dtps T** Honey 'Pink Face'
wk 34-07; F 44-06; PT 96
3 other phals NOID

Dendrobiums:
D. Burana Princess TB1453
D. White TB1337 wk 45-07
D Eima - Burana
Den Cana
Den Salaya Red
Den MC - CS1066

Paph:
Hsinying Ruby Cherry #2 x Paph Teyon

Oncidiums:
Onc Issaku Nagata Mambo wk 28-07
Onc VCD754 DGRMA Flying High 'Stars and Bars' (? I guess its an Onc the tag doesn't say and it was a gift)

Thats my (current) list and I'm stickin to it... except I may add one here or there once in a while or um.. a week.. LOL

I really like the paphs.. but not a big selection around here but I'm watching/waiting. I also like Oncidiums. As long as I can maintain these plants then I'd surely love to get more. Any suggestions anyone?
