    Greetings from continental Europe. I have been growing for a few years, dabbling in dendrobiums (mostly kingianum, but also moniliforme), and more recently in angs of various kinds.
    I only have a small collection, as I have to move every few years for work, and when I do I usually have to give the plants away and start afresh.
    I currently have an aerangis citrata that has just finished blooming and is growing as happily as a weed, a luteo-alba var. rhodosticta with its first spikes, a fastuosa that is just settling in, and a flowering size angcm. sesquipedale, quite recently acquired, that I am hoping will offer something this year.
    I am an indoor grower, but the tall, narrow house I live in offers various microclimates for me to shuffle things around as appropriate -- though I need to keep them out of reach of a couple of small kids.
    I hope to be able to wring some advice out of the good crop of ang devotees there appears to be on this site, if that is OK!

    It is always a joyous occasion when another is called to the flock. Welcome to the forum and blessings be upon you and your Angs.

    Many thanks for your kind welcomes.
    I have made my first real post now -- unfortunately I start in
    the "Issues, Disease and Pests" forum, but I guess that's how most of us start... Let's hope it's nothing to worry about.
