I love them. Before I was displaced from my life and home from my less than stellar ex-husband, I had so many orchids. All different kinds. I have always had a green thumb with regular plants and decided to take a chance on the more exotic. I am happy to say that I did very well with them. I would take cuttings and then have twice as many and brought them to bloom. They are so interesting and the different shapes and sizes of the flowers unique. That's one of the things that I miss about my stolen life is my collection of orchids.
