    Hello to all. I'm from the Miami/Cutler Bay area. Just wanted to check this place out, and thanks Tom in PA for the invitation.
    I am mainly into vandas but also have a few others that have been given to me.
    I also spend a lot of time in the swamps of the Everglades and Fakahatchee in particular. Most of my time in there is spent looking for and photographing the Ghost Orchid.
    Hope to learn a whole bunch more from you guys.

    latest trip

    Hey guys, thought you might wanna see what it looks like in there now, hopefully the water will recede some more next month so it will be easier to get around. Hope you like the pics.

    Thank you so much for the pics. I'm trying to grow one now in a terrarium. I also like the vandas.

    Glad you liked them. Clif I love vandas since they don't require as much attention or care? Anyway I have a few baby ghosts Im growing indoors in a window and so far no caualties. Do you have pics of the one in your terrarium?
