    Default a forest begins with one spore......

    Ok, great so you found us...

    Welcome, welcome, don't mind the leaches...

    Well, amidst all those orchid leaves and roots and flowers (aherm *cough cough* "where are my flowers?" ), what else are lurking in your grow areas?

    There are those who say that a great way to increase humidity in your grow area is to give your plants some friends... unfortunately imaginary ones are no good in this case, so how bout Ferns and Bromeliads?

    Well for one thing, they don't stink like those Amorphophallus.

    And many have pretty foliage and others puts on a great show with flowers... ok, there are some which are just darn crazy weird, but hey, gotta cater for everybody right

    I'm a newbie gardener so I only have a total of three bromeliads - two NOIDS, and 1 Spanish Moss (yes, they are a bromeliad), and ferns, well I have three as well. I have two Birds Nest Fern and a Maidenhair Fern, unless... are Tree Ferns, trees, or ferns?

    Well, I'll just go on and on and well most of us have a life (ok, so I don't but I'm sure you do...) so, what do you have and how do you grow em?

    I think I might have three, one I know is a Brom, the other two, not sure about. I'm going to post pics to get you folks' opinion. (And I do have spanish moss, though definitely never knew *that* was brom at all.)
