    Hi,
    I saw where Pete Paphraguy mentioned this forum on another forum...so here I am. Some of you might know me as Tilly(a nickname I have used on other forums).

    After I got hit with a computer worm from another forum, I have been hesitant to join another forum again, but I really want to share my orchid growing and also need advice from more experienced growers from time to time. Also, the free orchid give away was good incentive,too!
    Especially, with my big 55 birthday coming up May 24. That would be a great birthday surprise.

    I have been growing in my home for four years...this spring hubby built what I call lovingly a "treehouse greenhouse". It is a growing area off our sunroom-dining room that is or I should say was a deck about 12ft off the ground, hence" treehouse greenhouse."

    I grow a little bit of everything, paphs, phrags, dends,oncids,milts, catts, mini catts, vandas,phals...some species...too many!

    Happy Growing!

    We grow a bit of everything too, and wish we had the space to grow a bit of everything more!

    Very glad you're here, Gilda.

    Welcome Gilda,
    I am new also and just in the Orchid business to enjoy the beauty of the plant. I let rv-orchidworks do the growing part and I do the enjoying portion of it.
    Again welcome,
    Barbara

    As another new member I just wanted to say 'hello' to everyone.

    Seems Peter has done his fair share of recruiting!
