    Is someone from the far east and a beginner welcome here? No one referred me, I just stumbled on this place during my search. I didn't realized though that most of the members know each other personally and are professional growers.

    Hi! Not all of us are professional growers yet, I'm still stumbling around with growing orchids.

    Welcome and I hope you find lots of good info and entertainment here as I do.

    I like being called a professional grower even if I'm not. Sounds just dandy to me!
    Welcome. I've been growing about 15 years and I'm still a beginner. I have NO idea
    when one advances to intermediate grower. Let's have some standards suggested
    here.

    Hi Lcl! I don't think it is necessarily that we all "know" each other.....it seems a bunch of us are acquainted from other orchid forums and I myself recognize a few others here. Glad you stumbled upon us. I am a beginner of almost 2 years. What do you grow?

    I'd like to add my welcome LCL. I'm far from an expert grower. I'm here mainly to enjoy the fun with friends, look at the beautiful photos, and learn where I can

    I have a few Catts, Dends, Paphs and Phals and few others that I don't know about when I bought them :D

    I have no wanted list when I go shopping for orchids, I just buy what attract my attention and whether its cheap or not :rolleyes:

    Forrest calls himself newbie too. I think that is pretty cool!
