Hi,
My names Mandy and I am addicted to orchids!!
I've always loved plants and admired orchids for years, thinking they'd be too difficult for me to keep.

But for my 40th birthday I got bought my first Phal and I was instantly in love. I love learning as much as I possibly can. So every spare moment I am researching online, in books, reading as much as I can about orchids.
I now have many different Phal's, and because I'm up for a challenge I decided probably stupidly to jump right in, and get a militonia, a cambria ( jungle monarch?), two cymbidiums, two dendrobiums, two slipper orchids, a burrageara, a zygopetulum, and phal's... Did I mention the phal's?!!!

My life's been dedicated to animals and the last few years I've been rescuing rats from death. Leaving me little time for other things. So it's nice to see such beautiful flowers in the home, especially when some days are sad or difficult.

I just hope I can keep all my beautiful orchids alive!
