    I actually caught orchid fever about ten years ago and did tons of reading about them, and grew some for a while...but life got in the way. I'm coming back to them now and couldn't be happier. I made a trip to Carter and Holmes in Newberry, SC and got a Psychopsis in spike and two paphs from a budget table. I've already ordered and received a Bulbophyllum echinolabium off ebay, and have a Stanhopea assidensis on the way. I've missed orchids.

    Thanks for the greetings! I'm pretty excited. I may need someone to take away my ebay privileges soon, though!

    Welcome to our forum and back to the orchid growing world. I was chatting with a girl just the other day who lost most of her collection after a divorce/ move who was wanting back in. I strongly suggested she go rescue a phal or two from the Depot! We love to enable around here!
    Hey, do you like beer?

    Carter and Holmes is a great place to visit. You will need to get there for their Fall sale, I think the Spring sale has already taken place. Hell, I need to get there for one of their sales, it's not that far from my place in GA.
    Again, welcome to Orchids Interactive!

    By the way, what is your favorite beer?

    as to beer, I'm a huge fan of Stone Ruination IPA; Great Divide Hercules Double IPA; Dogfish Head 60, 90, and 120 minute IPA...the list goes on! Carter and Holmes is awesome. I went there to start back my collection. It's only about 45 minutes from Columbia
