I am a new member to the Orchids Forum and wanted to introduce myself. I have been growing orchids on and off for the last 38 years and enjoy them immensely. I have a nice cross section of species and hybrids. Dendrobiums and Cattleyas do well in my environs here in Gainesville, Florida. I grow out-of-doors for most of the year using shade houses and in a green house during the winter. For the last two years I have been able to grow phaleanopsis with ease something that I've never been able to do! I wish I could find the right combination for my paphiopedilums! Well anyhew hello to all and I look forward to being a part of the Orchids Forum.
