I started this blog as a way for me to record the care required for my orchid collection. My collection is relatively small (about 15-16 orchids) and is split between Phalaenopsis orchids and Oncidium type orchids.

I also wanted to share the experiences I have had with orchid growing and the benefits that come with it. Life isn’t always straightforward or easy. For me, orchid growing is a way to process and manage the stress that can come with difficult or challenging situations. By focusing my attention on caring for these beautiful plants, I have found a way to practice mindfulness and calm my busy brain. I hope that you can find enjoyment – and perhaps a little bit of quiet –┬áin this hobby too.
