    I have to pipe in - S&H is awesome!!!!! I have *all* my plants in it - and while some people might think this risky, they all appear to be doing very well. I haven't lost any, and I repotted into S&H over a year ago. Walla2butterfly, I noticed you aren't accepting PMs - but if you like, I'd love to talk about S&H with you if you're interested - I've really gotten a feel for it and its a very flexible medium.

    Tami,

    In the upper left corner of this page click 'User CP'
    This will bring you to a new page with a list along the left side. In this list click 'Edit Options'.
    This will bring you to a new page. Scroll down the list until you see 'Private Messaging'. Make sure there is a check in the box that says 'Enable Private Messaging'.
    I also keep the last 2 boxes in that section checked. About receiving email and a popup.

    Good Luck
    BC

    Tami,

    All you need to do is subscribe to the thread you want to be alerted about. To do this, go to a thread. At the top of the thread (first post) look for Thread Tools. Click this and a drop down menu opens. Click on "Subscribe to Thread". That should do it if you have your User CP set to send email notifications when someone replies to your thread.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Okay I see thanks. I guess if it was the dead long winter months I would have had it down yesterday, but seeing it is late spring, I am spending more time outside then in. And there is that dreaded bill payer that I keep having to get up and go to just so I have some trinkets to buy some orchids with (LOL). Well one of this days I will figure it out, and remember 'how I did that" yesterday... Thanks again for your help

    So, tell me about the process that you are using.
