    Wow joined this forum in 2008 and have occasionally read posts but not introduced myself. My first post was to ask for suggestions to order favors for our holiday party. Your suggestions was Alan Koch and I have used plants from him most of the time since! Since joining here I have been vice president and then president of the Orchid Society of Western Pa. What a wonderful group of folks! Now just a member! I have about 300 orchids I grow in my basement during the winter with 2 HID lights (1000 watt and 400 watt) and a 3 shelf florescent light cart that I have just changed from the old T8s to T5 fixtures. I grow various genera not specializing in one type. Favorites are some of the older cats..BLC Greenwich 'Elmhurst', my newest Dtsp KV Charmer M, bulbos but I don't bloom them well. I exhibit at our orchids show in the spring and have taken on the task of Show Chair for this coming spring.
