What kind of orchid is the shaggy thing?

JackPedigo Level 8 Apr 9, 2019

The one outside the window?

@Heidi68 No the 4 legged one. lol (being silly)

@JackPedigo that's what I meant by the one outside the window ? that is a sable yorkie monster orchid ?

@Heidi68 I missed the window picture at first glance.


Nice!! I tried to grow an orchid once, did not go well. Now I have young cats. I have mostly given up on house plants.

Lucky for me my cat is a barn cat ? she comes in when she feels like but prefers the garage or the barn.

@Heidi68 I have house cats. During the winter when I had 8 inches of snow on my deck I opened the door so they could check out the snow. One of them didn't even venture out. The younger one took about 3 steps out into the snow, shook off her feet, and scurried back into the house. Yeah, mine are pampered babies.

@HippieChick58 even my crazy Yorkies love the snow & the couch & my lap & the bed & my snacks & ..... ???


What a wonderful addiction to have though!

I think so ?❤


Nothing wrong with an addiction to orchids. It takes special attention; not over nor under watering....just the right amount of light....I used to have many - then I moved...I can't grow them here....too close to the beach? Not sure why...I'm on the shady side of the building....the patio gets too hot in summer? Anyway....kudos on your collection!

Thank you - it is so much fun watching them go from just leaves to the beautiful flowers


I would say it's an addiction; quite common among orchid lovers. And I just discovered that, depending on the genus, it could be about edibles. I never realized that vanilla comes from the Vanilla Orchid. Learn something new every day.

It's an addiction. I had probably three hundred plants and ornamental trees spread out over three acres. The majority of them from the side of the road or clearance sales. Seems I have a very green thumb.

Wow! That is impressive! I have 10.5 acres but most is woods and I am leaving it that way. Part is pasture for the horses and I get the small front yard & house ?

@Heidi68 , this was on a wooded lot. You would be amazed at the number of shade loving plants. Bleeding hearts and astilbes are two of my favorites. Daffodils will bloom anyplace. Eight varieties.


I;m sure there's a better way to express an orchid addiction , especially when you can keep them not only alive , but blooming as well .

What's the problem? You like beautiful things, I don't see that as a problem....

I seriously need to win the lottery. You know so I can take care of all my pretty things ?
