    Talking Introduction

    Hello every one! I wanted to introduce myself to everyone as the newest kid on the block. My name is Lisa and I am in NC. I am a labor and delivery nurse by trade, but my real love is orchids! I have 80-some, scattered through out my house and trees. Thank goddness I have the most understanding husband in the world. I've been growing less than a year, so I'm still in need of your wisdom and guidance from time to time, especially when I branch out to different types of orchids. Currently, I have several types of oncidiums, dendrobiums, phals, catts, encyclia, one sarco, one cym, one drac, and one peristeria elata. I hope to get a greenhouse next year. I look forward to getting to know you all, and sharing a love of orchids!

    Oh, girl, I'm such an addict. I'd have more if my husband didn't smack my hand every now and again. Actually, I've been looking a bulbos, thinking I might try one. If I can find one not too stinky!

    Check out Sue's bulbo in the display area. It's a really beautiful plant. It may be a few pages back, but worth the search! Don't know what it smells like tho! lol.

    Hello Neighbor and Welcome,
    I live in East TN. Where in NC do you live?

    I have the same problem as you,only mine has been going on 4 years and now orchids are 200+, and I only got a "treehouse greenhouse" this year.

    We enclosed part of our deck, which is 12' off the ground for me to have a growing area. My hubby got tired of looking through orchids to see outside!

    Poke around the different sites here , ask questions and show us your "bloomers"!

    Make yourself at home....you are among great growers and a friendly bunch!

    Hi Gilda, nice to meet you! I live in Mooresville, about 30 minutes north of Charlotte. So pretty close to you!

    I am fortunate to have lots of big, sunny 2 story windows in my house, so the orchids have lots of light. I have wire shelveing over my garden tub (hey,who needs a bath) and a nice eastern windowsill that my phals and seedling enjoy. I had to move catt seedlings away from the window because they're turning red. And I love looking at them all day, every day, but my husbands and sons don't share my enthusiasm (I just don't get why not) and so I lust for a greenhouse. My husband's pretty handy so I trust him to build it. Just gotta get the $$ (which I'd have more of if I'd quit buying orchids!)
