    im new here too! it also thanks to pete -- i was lurking (hence the avatar) and saw his posts about this forum in a couple of other forums, so here i am! im new to orchids, and ive found that ive learned a lot just from reading everyone elses questions :check:, so ive never felt the need to speak up (or 'type' up, as it were).

    lja: thanks to you for your offer of the free plant! if it werent for that, i would probably still be lurking.

    i love those smilie things -- i hope that i dont abuse them in my first few posts...

    uh oh. too late. :toofull:

    Wow, I'll say Peter has done some serious recruiting! I'm here because of him as well, and the chance to win something! But this forum is so much more user friendly. Thanks for posting that message in the other forum!

    Thank you PAGrower!!! The old double nickel birthday wasn't too bad. I got to go to an Orchid shop in Brevard, NC., but was disappointed in their orchids...buggy and VERY high priced.

    A 4" potted phal was $35!! There were enough mealy bugs on plants that it looked like wads of cotton

    One thing i found interesting ...they have all their orchids in Pro Mix....catts, vandas,dends, and phals. If they weren't in Pro Mix,they were in sphag. moss. All their catts had botyris(sp).

    Happy Growing,

    Boy. It's no wonder people are leery about ordering orchids by mail.

    Still, glad you had a good birthday, Gilda!
