Hello! I have been playing with orchids since the late 70's, and many times when I needed to get an answer to a problem with them, I always found the answer from this forum. So after so many years of 'lurking' I have finally decided to join. Since retiring, I have had a lot more time to baby them and to add to my collection. I really like Bulbophyllums and the leafless ones like Chilochistas, but I also have many other species and a few hybrids also. Whatever will grow in my hot and humid area will find a home in my collection. Right now I miss not being able to go to orchids shows.
