Re: Yo Jim and all


It is kinda silly, isn't it. Too much money; not enough commitment. To do the baby-sitting part right, one would need a few green houses and good climate control for each--the way Selby and the U.S. Botanic Garden are set up--so plants could be brought into flower year round. Big investment, but I'm sure it would be profitable here.

What I found bizarre about the article was that the obsession is limited to the flower. I enjoy watching them grow. Would a parent only want to see their child each birthday? I enjoy leaf structure, pruning and watching them take off in different directions. I don't grow orchids so maybe that's why I just don't get it.
